About

 The human body has certain resources it needs to survive. First one is oxygen, the second on the list is water. Oxygen is very accessible, but that’s not always the case with drinkable water. Access to clean water is quite scarce in certain parts of the world. 

“Every 2 minutes a child dies from a water-related disease” - Water.org 

Did you know of the 7 billion people on planet Earth, about 700 million of them lack access to clean water? Without water we would only be able to live for about a week. That means 1 out of every 10 people around the world could be a week away from dying. That’s about twice the population of the US.

With every PalmEraMia purchase you make, you help us donate 10% of our profits to help communities without access to clean water around the world.

As we celebrate our 4 year anniversary, we’re naturally looking to take the next big step: opening our first physical store. Our vision takes us to a future in which we empower everyone to make a change through their everyday streetwear attire. Through this project, you’re helping us grow as a streetwear brand and giving us a platform to continue saving countless lives. 

This move will help us to continue expanding the ever growing streetwear culture in Latin America through our native country of Colombia. Your donation will also give you access to our KICKSTARTER ONLY EXCLUSIVE COLLECTION. 

While 10% of our profits from PalmEraMia go towards helping communities without access to clean water around the world, due to Kickstarter regulations we are not able to donate a percentage of your pledges from this project.


Here's a look at the Exclusive Collection that will be available through our pledges in this very special Kickstarter campaign:

We’ve carefully selected the organizations we’ve chosen to collaborate with through our PalmEraMia donations. The key characteristic they all have in common is their level of transparency. Each one of these organizations guarantees that 100% of donations received towards water projects are used to help communities in need.

We’ve had the honor of seeing our PalmEraMia logo featured in prestigious publications, radio shows/podcasts, and even quite the few high profile music videos:

This is who we are:  

PalmEraMia Founders (Santiago, Andres, and Camilo)
PalmEraMia Founders (Santiago, Andres, and Camilo)

We’ve had a brotherly bond as long as we can remember. It goes back more than two decades, when our parents decided to migrate from Colombia to the U.S. in pursuit of a better future for us. After hopping around a few cities, we ended up in Miami, which has been our home for more than 20 years. The Miami culture and our Colombian background made for a very diverse upbringing that taught us valuable lessons that would later inspire many important decisions.

As we went through our college years, we took on careers and jobs that seemed to be on the “right track”. But something didn’t feel right. We were constantly faced with the dilemma of whether to go after what we were “supposed to pursue”, or chase what made us truly happy.

Making the decision to follow an alternate path and start our own clothing brand, PalmEraMia was tough, but we soon realized that chasing our dream, no matter the challenges was the right choice. We also decided that if our dream was going to be successful, the less fortunate had to be part of this success too. Which is why dedicating 10% of our profits to help communities without access to potable water around the world became part of our brand’s DNA.

This four-year journey has been a rollercoaster of thrills and learning experiences, as well as an amazing path of satisfaction and happiness. The hard work, discipline, and self-development it has required to cultivate everything has helped us expand our boundaries to points we had never dreamed of. Starting with gaining support from artists like Nicky Jam literally from day one to helping a community in need in our home country of Colombia, the relationships we have developed and lives we have helped save have made every moment worth while.

We look forward to making this fifth year our best year yet, and a period that will catapult us into the next chapter of success in which we can continue to share our best ideas with you, while helping those in need.

Many blessing to you for our interest in us, and making it this far down to learn more about our story!

Risks and challenges

In order to ensure the best experience for you, the samples used in the campaign are manufactured by the very same technique that your products will be.

Our four years of experience have allowed us to perfect our quality as shown in our PalmEraMia collections to date.

We understand that crowdfunding campaigns can come with unexpected hiccups so we've prepared ourselves for every eventuality - including going over our goal. In that case shipping to you may slightly delayed.

There may be shipping costs incurred due to additional duty fees charged by local customs in foreign countries outside the United States upon product delivery. We will not be covering these additional costs.

Due to possible delays during the development of the physical store, the official opening may be slightly delayed by a couple of weeks.

While 10% of our profits from PalmEraMia go towards helping communities without access to clean water around the world, due to Kickstarter regulations we are not able to donate a percentage of your pledges from this project.

It's imperative to us that we keep an open channel with our backers by conveying our thoughts to you every step of the way through Kickstarter comments and occasional updates to ensure you're always in the loop.
