Our Logo is a Promise.
We are Taínos the indigenous peoples of the Caribbean. Principal inhabitants of Cuba, Trinidad, Jamaica, Hispaniola, and Puerto Rico. The symbols that make up our logo represent our identity. It is how we choose to start the conversation.
Pereskia Quisqueyana aka la Rosa de Bayahibe is the national flower of the Dominican Republic.
It is actually a cactus, but one of the few that has leaves. La rosa is endangered due to a loss of habitat but has begun thriving since its uniqueness was recognized.
We chose this flower as the bohio or home for our logo because so often what is right before us, is special. We just need to realize it...
Huracán is the root word for hurricanes. Its spirals represent the storms that certainly battered our islands in pre- Columbian times.
The symbol was used interchangeably to represent water. Agua is life. Water connects, forms shapes and destroys at will.
At Ojala Threads we honor water sources by using inks that are water based, and white fabric, to avoid toxic dying practices.
This symbol can be interpreted as a swaddled newborn or burial preparation.
At both the beginning and the end of life, our rituals provided comfort and connection between generations.
Through this symbol, we honor our indigenous ancestors and their intuitive care- giving.
Diosa Luna is the Taíno goddess representative of the always inspiring moon.
Tainos from modern day Dominican Republic believed that the moon, stars and sun rose from Iguanaboina cave located on the eastern side of the island.
It is our hope that the magic her presence brings is felt by every baby that receives one of our pieces.
La palma is an icon with a lengthy history. It is referenced in holy books and other myths.
A symbol of victory, triumph, peace, and eternal life, it is featured on the Dominican crest.
The palm embodies our goals and wishes for all the babies we dress.

I gifted this velon to my friend for her birthday. She absolutely loved it. The fact that it came from DR via a botanica in the Bronx and was already infused made it the perfect gift. I hope this velon brings her clarity in this next year of life.
She’s beautiful! She’s beautiful on our tree. So much better in person. Love her. Ordering more for friends! Ramona thank you for choosing such a meaningful piece of art.
I received so much kindness and wisdom while purchasing the coffee maker. That was a gift for my loved one and it was given to me with such care.
The mamajuana I used it a ritual for my ancestors at home. It’s like breathing in life when you smell it.
the design is what got me but the size and overall comfortability of the fanny pack is what really got me! fits all of my gym necessities and more. i’ll definitely be back :)
At a time when everyone has so many choices on where to shop. I’m grateful for Ojala Threads for not just the amazing quality of their products, though the opportunity it provides to showcase and support talented artisans from the homeland. We are beyond impressed and are so happy to welcome this year’s ornament into our home and on our family Christmas tree. She’s even better in person. This is our second year of purchasing ojala threads’ ornaments and they are definitely treasured keepsakes and we look forward to our collection growing next year!!!! Ramona thank you for maintaining space and curating items that honor your culture for multiple indigenous communities to enjoy.
I absolutely have loved every tote I have ordered from Ojala! Ordered this one with two other for an upcoming family trip so we can all stay organized, be coordinated, and spot each other in a crowd. The quality is sturdy and the design beautiful.
I love my two Ojala Threads tote bags; they are perfect to carry my work from home to the office but can be used to carry anything else. The bags have a beautiful design and are high quality; I love the Coqui and Sol Taino and highly recommend that you make your purchase from Ojala Threads!
