We believe we can make a positive impact on women's lives through the products we make and opportunities we create.

Women Empowerment

We create our products in a cooperative structure, and actively re-invest back into the respective communities. Artisanal cooperatives help break the generation cycle of poverty for women, who are then able to send their children to school, improve their living conditions and nutrition, and expand their skills sets.

Revival of Indigenous Arts 

We revive fading cultural heritage by harnessing the talent in women artisans by moving them from subsistence to having sustainable livelihoods. Our artisans use age-old techniques that are rooted in regionally-specific traditions. Our process preserves over 5000 years of design intelligence that if on the brink of extinction.

Eliminating Fast Fashion Ideals

We craft products that are made to last because the most sustainable way to live is to buy less. With that said, every step, from harvesting the crops to shipping is a fully holistic process - not harming the consumer or the maker, because comfort should never come at the cost of the people or the planet.
