Our Story at Ekati Joy

Our Story

Hey Ekati Joy customers! I’m Katara, founder of Ekati Joy! I love making bolts of fabric into wonderful clothing designed just for you! My desire is to create a blend of quality and style in every handmade product I sell. I also enjoy designing Christian tees to be a witness to the world. But how did I get to starting my own business?

In November of 2022 I suffered a blow to my digestive system. The sickness left me lying at home without work for an extended period of time. I began to wonder if I could ever get back into a fast-paced job. So I started looking for things I could do from home. I’ve always loved creating things, so sewing was a great option for me. I began to take the steps forward to creating my very own business. When deciding on a name, I chose Ekati Joy because of the uniqueness and the story behind it.

‘Ekati’ is the Greek translation of my name. The definition is pure. I love that! My business name in full English is ‘Pure Joy.’ That’s what I want to display every day through my business. I want to have pure joy as I make quality products, and I want you to have pure joy as you buy quality, modest  clothing for your family. 

Through Ekati Joy, I hope to inspire all of you to grow wherever you are planted. I want to shine God’s light through everything I do.

Ekati Joy is a family run business in the heart of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. Each product is ethnically, hand-sewn in the United States and shipped straight to you.

Note From the Founder

My goal is to inspire everyone who I come in contact with through this business by maintaining a Godly witness. I strive to serve each of you to the best of my ability and serve my community with modest homemade clothing. I want my website to be a channel for the Word of Christ to spread around the world. Thank you for shopping with us and supporting a small business!
