We work with a vendor out of Oklahoma - Hilo de Amor - who grew up in Oaxaca and started a business working with local artisans back in her Mexican hometown.
"I proudly work with groups of creative artisans and offer the world’s most fantastic textile art through Hilo de Amor-Thread of Love. When you purchase items from our store, you are actively transforming lives by putting money directly into the hands of an original craftsperson. You are empowering Oaxacan families, and bringing long-term solutions to an impoverished region.
The Mexican state of Oaxaca is renowned for its artisans, and each one has a different story to tell. Not only do artisans put their hearts and soul into their work, but each finished product is engraved with a piece of their culture just waiting to be shared with others. These items resonate with the culture and individualism of the artisan and their families who have inherited the skills and been taught the traditions that have been used for many generations before."
