We are committed to creating
a vibrant, diverse, powerful community of womxn who are not afraid to speak our minds, take risks, elevate each other, create meaningful change, and live in pursuit of our desires.
The Perlene was born out of a desire for founder Kiki Littlestar to be surrounded by a community of powerful and open-hearted womxn who wanted to do business- and life- differently. She named the business after her maternal grandmother, a nod to the belief that none of us get where we are going all on our own.
