In partnership with Kiva, Etkie is empowering Native American women in New Mexico with business opportunities that preserve their rich and diverse culture. With your support, we will be able to launch our new wrap collection and continue on this amazing journey with more artisans! 

HELP US LAUNCH OUR NEW COLLECTION

YOU get to own the first edition of our stylish new wrap bracelets that make a direct impact in the lives of women in New Mexico. The bracelets along with a signed card from the artisan who crafted your bracelet will arrive  just in time for summer!   


WHY DO WE NEED $20,000? 

In addition to providing 5 new artisans with a steady stream of work, $20,000 will allow us to : 

  1. Increase our resources : a) purchase materials at a wholesale cost b) begin partnership with local women's cooperative c) participate in an incubator program 
  2. Pay for a complete branding & marketing overhaul from a well respected design agency called verynice that has done campaigns for UNICEF, MTV and United Way.    

We only have to sell 200 bracelets to meet our goal!  

YOUR IMPACT

Together, we can provide a sustainable source of income for Native American women in New Mexico, and the opportunity for women to make their own choices and live with financial independence, pride, and dignity.
