Made by Fair Trade Artisans in Mexico…
Many of the Artisan Communities we work with join together creating bridges of opportunities. Artisans & entrepreneurs in developing countries are given opportunity of empowerment by expanding their potential to reach a larger audience and bring you beautiful products.
An Artisans Story… Maria Luisa comes from a family of four generations of weavers. She enjoys every part of the weaving process, combining colors really makes her artistic heart sing and her purses are studies in subtle and complementary color-blocking of traditional patterns.
José Luis, Marias husband, didn’t begin to weave until he married Maria more than 20 years ago. He does near-perfect seams and leather detailing work for their purses. A heavy-duty sewing machine with industrial needles handles the heavy leather, but it’s his precision and eagle eye for detail that are the icing on the cake to his wife’s beautiful purses.
The shop inside of their home is spotlessly and arranged with an eye for beauty, with purses hanging from a wooden rack and rugs, cosmetic bags, pillow covers and coin purses lined up neatly on tables.
“This work is very pleasing,” said Maria Luisa, “You weave practically your life into it. Each piece is just that, a stage … a piece of your life.”
We at High5Humans are so happy to be taking part in their growth and working together to create beautiful luxury items. We thank YOU for helping all of us create opportunity with ethical, sustainable designs that are making a difference in the world.
Happily, more and more consumers are asking for fair trade products and looking to make socially conscious purchases. This is just another way for you to be a nice human!
