EVERINA is a fashion brand that provides chic, effortless fashion apparel while empowering artisans (especially in Indonesia) and influencing community. Our founder, Emelie was born-and-raised in Indonesia and passionate about people and building a fruitful community.

Growing up, during vacations or school-trips to lush islands of Indonesia (Sumatra, Bali and Sulawesi), Emelie was fascinated by artisan-crafts that was made to be meaningful and useful, in the first place. She saw that artisans use a mixture of materials and techniques; from cotton and ikat, teak wood and carving to rattan and weaving - and many more.

After moving to DC Metro area in 2003 then to California, she discovered love for Indonesian & artisan-made goods and fashion, and a huge potential it has to be useful for Americans. Together with Emelie's future-husband, Andy, Everina was established in Winter 2017.

Emelie believes that creative & hardworking artisans should be able to live a life of their dreams where they can support their family, develop their creativity & flourish. We believe our work is a ministry and has a purpose to be a blessing for the community around us - whether it is in America and outside.
