AlterNatives is an excellent example of what makes Carytown so special.
Locally owned, the store’s mission is based on the values of founder, Guadalupe Ramires who is working for social justice for Indigenous peoples. “In my culture, weaving is a sacred art. Many of our patterns are from a dream state. We dream the pattern and then we weave it.”
The store is bursting with color and is beautifully filled with ethically sourced weavings, clothing, jewelry and home decor. AlterNatives is also coordinating much of the Pride Festival that will be held on Saturday, June 29th in the parking lot behind their store. Located at 3117 West Cary, AlterNatives is a great place for the unique, meaningful gift for a friend or for oneself. Founder Guadalupe Ramirez’s vision is the basis of the AlterNative mission.

AlterNative employee Katherine Saint Clair Campbell loves Diversity Richmond and is excited about raising funds.
