We are a social enterprise working globally with women’s cooperatives to create unique handcrafted quality products. Our goal is preserve traditional techniques and natural methods of textile creation while addressing systemic gender and income imblances within the regions we work in.

 

Using the language of women to empower women, we preserve traditional textle methods taught through oral tradition; generationally from mother to daughter. In hopes to keep the knowledge alive, we are working to digitally archive this traditional wisdom while employing the women we work with through the products we sell.

 

With every product we sell we are supporting funding reproductive health initiatives, trauma informed care, (addressing human trafficking and domestic violence) while empowering women with leadership training within their communities. This is done through partnering with local organizations and leaders working to improve transparency, social wellbeing, and economic opportunities.  

 

More than a storefront for textile distribution; we are educators, archivists, activists and impact makers. Providing positive economic, social, and environmental impact programing within the communities.

Supporting Eco Quilt Making in San Marcos La Laguna
Published 90 Days ago by Lauren M |

Meet Pazul Adri

She is a local woman living in San Marcos La Laguna who is providing for her family through the creation of artisan quilts. When supporting her with your purchase, you are supporting a woman entrepreneur and the sustainability of using recycled materials. 

The quilt is made of recycled fabric from traditional cortes worn as skirts by Guatemalan women. They are made by loom into fabrics known as Jaspe, which is a traditon that dates back many centuries. 

Most women keep their cortes as their traditional traje (clothing) most of their lives, yet with all clothing, overtime they become worn and tattered. Pazul is using the tattered worn fabrics to create  new blankets that provide beauty, warmth and tradition. 

Consider helping her build her buisness by purchasing a one of a kind quilt. Please feel free to reach out with any questions and to make the purchase.https://www.facebook.com/sandra.puzullopez
