Hi! Thanks so much for stopping by. We are Rachel and Allison, best friends, mamas and business partners. Allison and her family (right) live in Nicaragua and Rachel and her family (left) in Canada. We met and became friends when we were teenagers living in Vancouver, Canada, but we both soon got married and moved over 6,000 miles apart. Fast forward a few years later, and we were new mamas to two beautiful, strong-willed little girls and soon we were more than just casually keeping in touch, we were navigating through motherhood together as best friends.
Rachel’s family vacation spot quickly became Nicaragua, and it was on one of her trips that the idea for our little shop came about. With a mutual love for the unique and handmade baby products made in Nicaragua, and a desire to share them with other mamas, Adelisa & Co. was created. We knew however, we wanted to do more than just sell products, we wanted to give back to the beautiful country they were coming from. Not only are we committed to working directly with artisans and paying fair prices so their families are supported, we also want to give back to other young families like our own that are in need. If becoming mamas has taught us one thing, it’s that it’s hard work, and most of us do it with all the modern conveniences available to us. By donating 10% of our proceeds to other young families in Nicaragua who are in need, we hope to make long lasting differences in the lives of the little ones they are raising.
