“There needs to be something out there that represents our people in a good way and really showcases some of the amazing stuff that people are doing out there in Indigenous ecommerce,”
Mallory Yawnghwe recently created Indigenous Box, a quarterly subscription service that she and her family run out of their home in south Edmonton.
Each box contains five to seven “fun and useful” products made by small Indigenous businesses. The Spring box included a Kokum (grandmother) scarf, earrings, sweet grass bath products and a sweet grass candle.
“We source all of our products from Indigenous entrepreneurs and feature their products and themselves,” Yawnghwe said.
The boxes not only help support entrepreneurs like her, Yawnghwe said it’s becoming a great way for Canadians to find authentic, appropriate Indigenous products that they can feel comfortable buying and using.
She also launched custom gifting solutions for organizations to connect with their conference attendees, employees, clients, and special guests.
Indigenous Box sold out its spring edition, but more information about upcoming subscriptions can be found online.
As for her Summer Box? Its already sold out!
