Petalura - Chicago, IL

Full-time | Part-time$13 - $15 an hour

Would you enjoy being part of a close knit team working together to build something special?

If so, then this role may have been designed just for you.

Dear Future Petalura Packer,

  • Do you love wrapping presents?
  • Do you have experience in Women’s retail or distribution, but feel like a small cog in a big wheel?
  • Are you a self-starter that finds satisfaction in doing a great job quickly and accurately?

If you’ve always had great attention to detail and go the extra mile to make sure your job is done right — this could be the opportunity you’re looking for.

Who is Petalura?
We’re a team of merchants, designers, photographers, copywriters, stylists, and art directors who met in 2004 while working on the National Geographic gift catalog and online store.

After more than a decade of creative collaboration, the time was right to strike out on our own. In late 2017 we launched Petalura to share our love of global craft and design, and to highlight unique artisan-made goods from around the world.

We’re excited to carry on our tradition of finding unique and thoughtfully made apparel, accessories, jewelry, home décor, and gifts. Our items support artisan traditions and celebrate creative expression from Italy to Indonesia to Zimbabwe to Peru and beyond.

Our symbol Named for a species of dragonfly, Petalura symbolizes change, transformation, and adaptability. After all, dragonflies spend most of their lives underwater before maturing into their most splendid, iridescent, adult form. It’s a metaphor we’ve grown to love: emerging from a period of change as brighter, stronger versions of ourselves.

Petalura celebrates the many moments of transformation in a woman’s life—a graduation, wedding, or promotion, becoming a mother, recovering from an illness, welcoming a first grandchild, starting a hard-earned retirement... The list, like women’s achievements, is endless.
