Know your artisans
Our talented artisan partners from Sandoná are mainly mums, single mums, farmworkers and displaced women and indigenous (due to violence in their hometowns).
While weaving is the main source of income for many women in the region, it is also an activity that fits within the juggle of raising a family.
They travel from their homes to Sandoná every weekend to meet at their workshop every Saturday. There they practice their designs and separate all the materials that each artisan will take home.
Weaving is an activity that encourages creativity and a sense of achievement. At home during the week they work on their orders - after finishing working at the farms, after putting kids to bed or before the kids wake up (like many other mums around the world do it!).
