OUR STORY

Hello there,
We are happy that you found us!
A little about who we are and why we are here,
Espwa started when co-founders Grace and Stacey went on a missions trip to Haiti. They were heartbroken over the poverty that was tearing families apart. As mom's themselves, they knew they had to do something.
The answer, Espwa.
 

OUR MISSION

With unemployment in Haiti hovering between 60-75%, parents are often left with no choice but to abandon their children in hopes they will find a better life. We have witnessed what happens when parents are offered the opportunity to work and create a life for themselves and their children.

Our mission is two fold, in Haiti we walk alongside our fair trade partners to support job creation, fair wages, full family support and empowerment by buying and selling high-quality, hand-made Haitian products to consumers in the United States. Stateside, we are educating consumers on the dangers of fast fashion and the impact we can make by intentional shopping. 

We are striving to Educate, Advocate, and Empower!
