CHURECA CHIC is the trading arm of our charity. CHURECA CHIC started as part of the dream to create a development model that has effective long-lasting change. In 2017 the label is getting ready to go regional.
CHURECA CHIC is a fashion label creating handmade high quality designer accessories based on waste materials. The collections are inspired by the flora and fauna of Nicaragua, its volcanoes and the entrepreneurial spirit of women whose lives are changed through the purchase of the products.
Starting as an artisan programme within EEP in 2010, CHURECA CHIC was launched in 2013 as a fashion label, marketing itself separately. In 2015 the label registered as a social enterprise and in 2016 began to provide full time employment to women graduating the EEP programme. CHURECA CHIC operates separately with the profits supporting our scholarship programme. As a charity with a social enterprise trading arm; our vision is to serve as a model for our partners and the wider society where we work to see the benefits of our social and job skill development programme in action. In Nicaragua, we have fast become a household name; our story and products have gone to London, New York, Panama and beyond. In February 2017 we launched our website and online sales from Nicaragua at www.churecachic.com.
