Description

At OTRA VEZ we believe in giving everyone and everything a second chance. Otra Vez is the Spanish word for again, or another time. At Otra Vez we encourage in the creative re-use of all things used. By giving discarded, unwanted or unneeded items another life through beautiful and unique pieces, Otra Vez takes the concept of RECYCLING into a new realm of possibilities. Reusing materials lengthens the life of individual objects, which decreases our impact on the environment. Each of our one-of-a-kind earrings and cards are made from RECLAIMED, RECYCLED, SALVAGED, or VINTAGE materials. At Otra Vez we are passionate about making a difference not only in our environment, but also in the lives of others around the world. We believe in encouraging and empowering all women to independence and a place of self-sustainment. We are also dedicated to offering hope to women, children, and families in war torn countries such as Sudan, Africa.

10% of our net proceeds directly support Women for Women International and the Save Darfur Coalition, two excellent non-profit organizations. Check them out at www.savedarfur.org and www.womenforwomen.org

Currently Working On

We are currently working on developing Otra Vez to include mosaics, photography printed on discarded material, baby clothes and items made from discarded/salvaged textiles, and finding other socially conscious artists to represent under Otra Vez. And of course, we are always marketing ourselves, our vision, and our products, in hopes of expanding.

Fitting enough work hours into each day, taming our creative minds to focus on our most lucrative and promising ideas.

Growing your business

The best things about watching Otra Vez grow are the increased possibilities we have to raise awareness, give back to others and positively change lives. We also love the idea the of one day being stay at home mom’s and providing for our families while expressing ourselves creatively as artists.
