We are a social enterprise aiming to empower the marginalized by increasing the public awareness on their poverty-stricken circumstances and sourcing for sustainable ways to integrate them in the society. In addition, we seek to sustain the necessary education for children in need in the developing countries through our products and outreach programs.
At Purnama, we want to create quality handmade products that do better; for local communities, for the environment and for the world.
The business is a social enterprise, geared to make a meaningful and positive difference in the lives of women and children in Asia, by creating quality products that can be marketed to create livelihood, education and environmentally conscious sustainable practices.

Purnama creates rare and unique lifestyle-products for the new, urban human being. Locally produced, eco-friendly and socially conscious.
Our weaving cotton products (Pokhara Collection) are naturally colored*, with a weaving and looming by local Nepali women whom we sponsor and bring into the skill development program. We keep the design local yet fashionable for urban setting.
(*) except when noted
Our distinctive upcycled products (Java Collection) are handcrafted from recycled tire tubes from local stores (Java, Indonesia). Any additional pieces are made from sterling silver and non-corrosive steel from local merchants. At the end of our crafting process, each item is cleaned and coated with an essential oil, which is naturally deodorizing and antibacterial and creates a long-lasting fabulous finish to our eco-friendly products. We design in intricate detail, with bold and edgy style.
