Welcome to Red Persimmon Imports!

Red Persimmon is all about Freedom. Everyone has his or her own definition of freedom. Red Persimmon Imports embraces the freedom provided by owning a small business, fulfilling a dream, and making a difference in the world.

The ethically sourced products that I sell are produced in environments that are safe and free of child labor, use ecological methods of production, promote women’s empowerment and sustain traditional arts in India, Mexico, Bali and Madagascar.

By my offering and you purchasing these products, the beautiful silk purses, silk birdsornamentsquiltsclothingjewelry, and stuffed toys, and more, we are doing something very tangible to make our world a better place. This is what makes Red Persimmon a socially conscious business and you a socially conscious consumer.

Thank you for joining me.
