When one woman thrives, her entire community thrives.
We are a group of artisans, designers and nonprofits working together to provide financial freedom for marginalized women and preserve culture. This platform serves as a hub of information, a market, and a movement. Look around and discover island-inspired goods made by women artisans who use ancestral techniques; read our feminist magazine NENAS to meet these artisans and learn about fair trade, environmentalism and social justice; and join us in this fight for female liberation—all to the beat of an island drum.
What You Buy Changes Lives
Every purchase not only supports women artisans, it also helps support and feed entire communities. A percentage of our sales goes to fighting food insecurity and sponsoring artisanship in places like Vieques island.
