Origami Owl is bringing its popular jewelry to the Canadian market with its first international expansion, the Phoenix-area company announced on Tuesday.
As a result of the expansion, Origami Owl’s 60,000+ U.S. distributors, called Independent Designers, will be able to sell the brand’s customizable jewelry to Canadian consumers, and vice versa. Origami Owl has brought on Marcia Cota, National Sales Director for Canada, to head up its new market.
“Like our Designers here in the U.S., our Canadian teams are sophisticated and hard-working. I have no doubt that with the combination of Origami Owl’s mission and this new opportunity, lives will be changed for the better,” Founder & Co-President Chrissy Weems said in the company’s release. “This is simply the next step in fulfilling our mission of being a global force for good.”
Founded in 2010 by then 14-year-old Bella Weems, Origami Owl adopted a direct selling model two years later. The brand debuted at No. 50 on the 2014 DSN Global 100, an annual ranking of the industry’s top revenue-generating companies. Origami Owl also earned DSN’s Bravo Growth Award for industry-leading growth of 870 percent in 2013.
