- ABOUT THE FOUNDER -
Thanks for stopping by! I’m Denise, founder of Equal Uprise. In a nutshell, I’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.
- ABOUT THE NAME -
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.
