Cora Lee Poole

she/they

Founder + Executive Director + Creative Visionary

Cora Lee first dreamt up the concept for Undestructable nearly 15 years ago as she sat in a sewing room while working on her BFA in Apparel Design at the age of 25.

 

It began as a tiny seed planted in passion for supporting survivors of domestic violence and of sustainability from a post-consumer space.

 

What began as a tiny seed has grown and matured into what we now know today.

"To say that Undestructable was born solely with the hope of helping survivors or solely around sustainable products would be a gross inaccuracy.  One is not exclusive from the other within Undestructable.  There are far too many parallels.  The concept that all things are disposable in our country spans from hard goods to human beings. This needs to change."

As a survivor and leader, she is always working to help women rediscover their value and define their purpose.
