-  ABOUT THE FOUNDER  -

 
Me.jpg

Hola,

Thanks for stopping by!  Iā€™m Denise, founder of Equal Uprise.  In a nutshell, Iā€™m an Ecuadorian American.  Ecuador is the place I was born and represents my introduction to life and this world, but the US has become the place I proudly call home.  After finishing college, I quit my corporate job and decided to fulfill my dream of starting a career where social impact is the driving force for what I do.  

In a world of mass production, my goal is to support & celebrate artisans that craft ethically made pieces.  These pieces incorporate traditional production methods as well as organic materials.  The combination of these result in labor rich one of a kind pieces that are as unique as the person that made them.  

Equal Uprise is made up of objects for the modern dweller and accessories for everyday life.  I hope you find that special timeless piece you will keep and cherish for years to come.

-Denise 

 
 
 

 
 
 

-  ABOUT THE NAME  -

Ā 

The name Equal Uprise represents the idea that success is attainable when it is equally shared.  I honor this philosophy by setting aside 10% of profits from sales and using that to fund business development projects for the artisans that craft each item in the shop.
