Shopping our brand helps in two ways;
1, We buy from the women to give them a sustainable, dignified income. The more we sell, the more we buy from them.
2, Income from sales is ploughed back into the community via empowerment programs for the women and menstrual kits for the girls to help them stay in school and get a consistent education.
Help us increase our impact. Carry our products in your boutique or store you are affiliated with.
Carry a brand that is conscious, fair, ethically made, sustainable, slow and empowers.

Donate to help us provide menstrual kits to adolescent girls in our artisan communities.
Girls miss a week of school every month. Menstrual hygiene kits help them stay in school, get a consistent education which leads to more choices and breaking the cycle of poverty.
Thank you! from our heart to yours.
We founded this nonprofit because we felt (still feel) that the artisan women go through so much to support their families. They beat the odds with cultural, religious, poverty and economic challenges that “keep them in their place” yet everyday, they work, they bead, they try. They make gorgeous accessories, shoes, blankets and we are passionate to help them see the value in their craft.
