Chureca Chic combines my love for art and my passion for humanity. I believe that every woman is capable of multiplying an opportunity and, that social entrepreneurship can provide a solution for the future to gender gaps, in poverty and in education. Our pieces tell stories of empowered women and Chureca Chic reflects the bigger picture I want to see become a reality for the communities we work with: a scenario that has equal opportunities for men, women and children. My vision is not only to effect change on a community level, but to spark a more human relationship between consumers and the producer. To break down barriers with art; creating high-end, unique products for consumers with a transparent production chain and ensuring social impact at it's heart. Nothing exists in isolation. We start solving problems when we make conscious decisions starting in our every day actions.
