Purposerosa is a lifestyle brand dedicated to illuminating purpose in everyday people and things. We design original handmade jewelry, prints and postcards made using repurposed materials collected from our international travels. Our mission is to highlight purpose globally to help you see purpose in yourself.
We’re Yaminah and Yarminiah, two Afro Latinx sisters born to Honduran and Puerto Rican parents who love to cook. Our last name is Rosa, hence the name Purposerosa. One of us is an interior designer and another is an art director. We came together to form Purposerosa as a passion project that grew from just an idea into a full on brand.
Most days you can find us at a coffee shop or in our studio with a fresh juice nearby, sitting in front of a computer working on building our dreams. In the summertime you’ll find us dancing salsa or vending at a craft fairs in Brooklyn. If you do, please say hi! We love meeting you in person.
We’re best known for bringing people together over food and genuine conversation, our ridiculous travel adventures (we have plenty, read some here) and supporting people in their quest for purpose.
