Magpies & Peacocks, Inc. is a nonprofit 501c3 design house based in Houston, Texas. Our mission is to create an environment for positive change by nurturing arts education, keeping fashion out of landfill, and giving back to the Houston community. Our model rests on four pillars: Collaborate, Create, Educate and Invest. We build creative connections between local leaders, businesses, donors, artists, designers, educators and Houston area nonprofits.

And by raising essential funding and supporting local grassroots causes, we can invest back into our community.
