OUR ARTISANS IN THE YUCATAN PENINSULA

53 ARTISANS

87% ARE WOMEN

77% SUPPORT AT HOME

94% ARE FROM RURAL SPACES

14% KEEP THE HOME

We team up with two groups of artisans: artisans in our workshop who are experts in
embroidering and manipulating henequen; and artisans who work from home, in
rural areas of Yucatán, where they can continue taking care of their homes and families. They are experts and have dedicated their entire lives to this beautiful work, their knowledge was passed on from generation to generation, and their creativity helps us develop our bags and accessories.

 

Our team is a fundamental piece in this project, so giving them excellent working
conditions is a priority.  All are paid on the national minimum wage and the worker's labor rights are respected; There is no child labor or human trafficking in the production of the collection, and we comply with all local health and safety regulations.

We produce through small collections to avoid waste, in addition to using handmade techniques. Among these techniques are: backstrap loom weaving, henequen weaving, jipijapa weaving, embroidery, cross-stitch embroidery, macramé and crochet.

Materials such as henequen are important because, in addition to being local, producing it does not generate waste and is used to the maximum.

Taking care of the planet is in our hands.
