Victory in Peace
Originally meant to symbolize victory in war, the two-finger hand sign was co-opted by the anti-Vietnam war protests in the US and turned into the now iconic symbol for peace. To pay homage to this past we wanted the design to feel retro , with its impact being forward-focused on the local peacebuilding efforts taking place all over the world. It’s meant as a reminder that the march towards true peace is a long one but that there are many on this path with us.
Our Peace line of patches benefit peacemakers in conflict and post-conflict countries.

Where your money goes
With an increasing number of companies pledging x % of their profits to charity, it can be hard to tell how much impact your purchase is really making. We’d rather things be clear as sunrise on a mountain top, after a long hike with good friends, and some coffee….mmm. What were we talking about again?
- ~$1 to artists and designers
- ~$2 to grassroots nonprofits
- ~$2 materials and manufacturing
The rest of your purchase goes towards everything else that it takes to run a business including office space, fulfillment, storage, labor costs, taxes, etc.
Our impact strategy is focused on getting funds to the frontlines of change, to grassroots leaders and organizations that are from the communities they serve. These changemakers are often overlooked by donors despite being incredibly effective at building a better world. Learn more about our impact model and the nonprofits we support.
