Promoting empowerment and sharing craft traditions is the main objective Proud Mary, a company devoted to celebrating developing nation artisans and their work while providing a global exploration of textiles.
Proud Mary was started in 2008 when founder and owner Harper Poe returned from work in South America. She fell in love with the culture and customs of the native people, which inspired her to start a business that would promote social change. According to its website, "Proud Mary believes in design that solves problems. We create unique, handcrafted patterned goods that are made in a socially and ecologically responsible manner."
By promoting social resposibility and allowing for the sale of affordable materials for families that suffer financially, this will result in opportunities for economic growth, while resources and ideas are exchanged to benefit the relationships with the artisans.
