Looking for a way to have a positive impact south of the border? One of the benefits of our work with Catrinka is that we have gotten to know lots of amazing brands that directly employ and support Mexican artisans. Best of all, some of them even ship to retail customers in the US. Here is our roundup (photos click through to brand websites):
Kolaval (carries El Camino de los Altos, Flor de Xochistlahuaca and Chamuchic):
Onora Casa (ships worldwide, contact them for details)
Oh, and Catrinka, of course! We provide work directly to artisans in Chiapas, Guerrero, Puebla and Oaxaca, and to women who work in our partner workshop in Mexico City. All our Mexican-made products come directly from Mexico to Brooklyn (duty free thanks to NAFTA, at least for now) where they ship out to you.
