Have you always wanted to connect with artisans around the world? Want to co-create unique collections? Want to share the model? Want to transform the fashion industry? Become an ambassador. We’ll support you every step of the way.
"This program transforms your relationship with yourself, it transforms how you view the world and and it transforms how you use your skills and experiences to exist in this world."
The ‘Co-creation with Artisans’ Program is about the way that we work, the way that we connect. To be honest, we do it deeply, nothing is surface level around here.
You want to create a positive social impact on the world?
This transformational program begins with an inward journey of connection with self, with environment and with all.
From this place we are able to connect with artisans in a space of Love, value and equality and create positive change that is mutually beneficial.
Founder, Cara, lives with the communities that we work with and has developed a model of 'co-creating with artisans' designed from her journey and experiences, from studying an M.A. with the United Nations, designing and carrying out participatory research in refugee camps, studying Tantra and living remotely in the Jungle.

About Cara Boccieri
As the founder of Akamae and the co-creation fashion movement, Cara Boccieri has developed a unique way of connecting and co-creating with communities. At the foundation are three mindset shifts she believes anyone facing a new community must make. She summarizes them as:
Love as opposed to fear
A belief in in a community’s abundance as opposed to lack
True connection and value as opposed to pity
From this places comes creative energy and the co-creation of products, services, and positive change.
With a background in social entrepreneurship, mediation, and participatory methods, Cara will share with you this unique approach.
