Mission Statement

The Nicavana Project was founded on the belief that a small project can have a profound impact on the lives of many – for artisans and their pets. Our mission is to work with dedicated artisans skilled in looming, sewing and leather working to create unique, high quality pet accessories for more than just a cause.

We believe that our collars create opportunity.

We believe that each and every one of our artisans deserves fair pay, an environment they are comfortable in, and a job they are proud of. Our mission is to trade directly with skilled artisans and their families where regular work is either inaccessible or unavailable.

At The Nicavana Project, because our products are for our pets, we also believe that pet welfare is equally as important as job creation. We are committed to improving the lives of our workers and the pets in their communities. We’re dedicating 10% of our profits to free veterinary care projects throughout Latin America care of World Vets, an incredible organization that has helped thousands of pets, livestock and working animals throughout the communities where our artisans live and work.
