The Gemini Collective was created by me, Emily Powell, in 2019. It was born out of my love for print, color and free-form bohemian style both in my wardrobe and home. I'm so inspired when I travel-by the the cultures, the people and the art they create, I wanted to bring bits and pieces from those places back and have them available all in one place. I have a baby girl Penelope Capri and a brindle Great Dane Kobe with my husband Breighen and we live outside of Des Moines, Iowa. I have spent years in the creative industry buying and visual merchandising, prop and wardrobe styling, photoshoot production and event styling. I have always dreamed of creating something of my own and I really wanted to create a new way to shop local with the convenience of Amazon but with the specialness of being on vacation and finding a piece you love that no one else has. I'm inspired by artists and the heart and soul that goes into handmade pieces, and I strive to work with artisans and designers who value sustainability and ethically produced pieces.
