Our Story

Catalyst Collections arose out of a desire to bring high quality, handmade products from Haiti and Iraq to the US market. The beautifully designed and carefully constructed items represent the dedication, resilience, and talent of women living in distressed regions of the world.

Catalyst Collections is operated by Prosperity Catalyst, a US-based nonprofit dedicated to building and strengthening women-led businesses creating opportunities for vulnerable women to achieve economic empowerment.

We envision a world where all women have the opportunity, capacity and support to become powerful catalysts for social and economic change.

Prosperity Catalyst works toward this vision by preparing, training, and supporting women entrepreneurs and artisans to gain business acumen, technical expertise, life skills, and economic stability. This training helps individuals and businesses develop the skills they need to operate successful enterprises through the production of products inspired by their culture, yet adapted for US tastes.

Currently offering products from Haiti and Iraq, we are always looking for new places to bring our unique model to unleash the capacity of women and allow them to support their families and communities.
