PurpleDirt is a collective of primarily female artists and organizers based in Nicaragua and Canada that believe fashion is a platform for social enrichment and change. The organization was created to support Nicaraguan artisans striving to end poverty in the country they love. Not only do our artisans share their creativity with PurpleDirt, they also own 25% of the company. Additionally, PurpleDirt invests 10% of proceeds  back into our partner charities.

We create one-of-a-kind, expressive jewelry using raw materials primarily sourced in Nicaragua and up-cycled materials from Canada. Each of our pieces tells a unique story about who we are and where we come from. Our work draws on inspiration from two distinct cultures with a common vision:  to create a world where diversity is embraced and individuals are empowered to collectively make the world a better place.
