A Little About Me
I started Evimero Marketplace with the desire to help artisans around the world and here in the states to be able to thrive in the places they live, work and raise their families. Over a year ago on a recommendation from a friend I read the book Overdressed by Elizabeth Cline and it made a huge impact on me. I started my career in the fashion industry and felt I knew a lot about the manufacturing process of apparel but this book reminded me of the human and environmental impact our fast fashion culture has had on the world. This led me to start making different decisions when I considered a purchase. I started taking a second look at labels and where things were being made, I emailed some companies to get more information on their manufacturing process and I started to support retailers who made a conscious effort to oversee where things were being made and how things were being made.
Fast forward to 2020 when I decided to take a leap of faith and start my own little business here in Roswell, GA. I want to create a place that supports artisan vendors from all over the world and makers here in the US. All of the manufacturers I work with are companies that are doing something for the social good and are passionate about supporting their artisans so that they can make a living wage to be able to support their families or they are working here in the states to create systems all over the world to fight human trafficking and other abuses.
I choose to work with partners who are interested in contributing to the social good of this world, working to ensure artisans are making a living wage capable of support their families. Some are working to create systems to fight human trafficking and other abuses of humanity all over the world.
My goal is to always be on the hunt for beautiful and unique gifts and accessories that I would be excited to give or receive myself.
