Impact your home, empower communities.
This is the mission of Sparrow & Co., a local home goods shop and online retailer that supports women through the unique handmade items they make and sell. The shop seeks to impact communities both locally and globally through the power of social enterprise and by providing customers an opportunity to shop with purpose. At Sparrow & Co., consumers can find a curated collection of home decor products such as pillows, throws, rugs, and pottery, as well as gifts such as jewelry, bags, and clutches. This home goods shop is helping its customers uniquely style their own space with purpose and meaning.
Sparrow & Co. currently has artisan partners in over 22 countries and 15 states. “We wanted to create a space that gave a voice to and showcased the work of local and global makers, while also empowering these communities. We reinvest 100% of our net proceeds back into our nonprofit, Sparrow Collective, to impact and empower the community,” Sparrow Collective Founder and CEO Rachel Joy said when asked about their origins.
All of Sparrow & Co products are ethically sourced and many are handmade. “We have thoughtfully selected our artisan partners and curated our product selections,” Executive Director of Global Initiatives, Jessica Purvis, shared. In addition, Sparrow & Co. has launched their own branded collection of pillows and candles and plans to continue to expand into other product lines. “We are particularly excited about our in-house production because it allows us to invest in the women of our local community through job training and economic empowerment,” Purvis said.
Sparrow & Co. emphasizes ”Your Home Can Tell a Greater Story.” “We want to tell our makers’ stories, whether it's a maker from down the street or across the globe, and we want to invite our customers into the narrative,” Purvis said. “We know if we invest in women by supplying meaningful, consistent work through the purchase of their goods, they, as well as their families and communities, will thrive. Our customers are a vital part of the story.”
“We love time around the table here at Sparrow. Through our design services, we use the beautiful pieces from our makers to create warm and inviting spaces where you can gather with your family and friends,” Joy said. “Through Sparrow & Co., we work to educate and create awareness around the idea that what you purchase matters. I’m super, super proud of this space, the team, and what we’re creating in homes because we’re impacting lives and creating spaces of community.”
While Joy and Purvis are building relationships globally, they also want to connect with people in the Lewisville area and provide a space for them to make an impact. “We believe in the power of community and in creating meaningful impact, and it is our joy to get to do these things with both our global makers and our local community,” Purvis said. “We want our building to be a source of light to the community.”
