Holiday Contest

Posted by PAKA (Creator)

We've set up a contest.

We love seeing you enjoying the product that we’ve put so much time into. Send us a picture of you wearing your Paka sweater / beanie doing something that you love, whether it’s cuddling with your dog, a casual heli-ski trip, a day at the beach, enjoying a great concert, snorkeling (make sure you air-dry), or simply kicking it with friends, and we’ll pick our 5 favorites! Just tag us in your Instagram pix or email - the winners will receive free beanies and be featured on our website. 

Every photo submitted will be included in a slideshow showcasing all of your beautiful faces and daily adventures :)

Have an amazing vacation, and thank you all once again for your support, we’re grateful for it every day.

Love, Paka

      I haven’t received my parka yet. I live in the UK. Do you know when I should expect it?

      Many Thanks,

      Can I also send a picture of my sweater almost falling apart the first time I put it on? Big gap/sewing broken on shoulder. Big disappointment, what to do??

      I just checked my pledge and it says, "I got it" with a check mark, and I haven't received anything. I imagine that I'll receive sometime this month, but I definitely didn't check off that I received anything. Glad this project is taking off; having spent about 3 years in the Peace Corps in the 80s, it reminds me of well-thought out projects that augment an existing infrastructure and help local folks, esp women, to become more economically self-sufficient.

      A friend had ordered before me and the hoodie looks and feels amazing.
      How does one find out when the goodies will arrive?
