Equal Uprise is a lifestyle brand that merges responsible production methods and simple modern design to create timeless accessories.


Equal Uprise is the marriage of a few of my passions - quality craftsmanship, conscious consumerism and modern design. 

The pieces I select or design for the shop are rich in labor and quality.  They're one of a kind pieces that are as unique as the person that made them.  My goal is to empower artisans who are creating fair employment opportunities in their communities.

I hope you enjoy my selection of modern homewares and accessories.

With love,

Denise Paredes


Our collective efforts are helping create and sustain jobs for marginalized artisans from rural communities in Ecuador and Tunisia.   The income created at the workshops I partner with is funding education for the children of the artisans and and in some cases, funding education for the artisans themselves. 

Additionally, each sale is funding improvements for the business of each artisan through our Business Development Program.


To create a platform that connects talented artisans to conscious consumers who enjoy modern design while acknowledging the importance of accessibility to responsibly made goods.  I place a heavy focus on a lean supply chain to make this possible:

I select pieces that are hand-crafted in small quantities with the use of locally sourced organic materials whenever possible.

Equal Uprise focuses on homewares and accessories that offer practical versatility.  Each design emphasizes simplicity over trends, which allow for the creation of pieces that will endure the test of time.

Equal Uprise's collections of objects and accessories are created to effortlessly enhance your home and/or look.
