THIS HOLIDAY SEASON WE WILL BE DONATING 10% OF ALL PURCHASES TOWARDS K.I.N.D (KIDS IN NEED OF DEFENSE) TO SUPPORT THE REUNIFICATION OF FAMILIES SEPARATED AT THE BORDER
One of the issues that has devastated us all is the treatment of children at the border who have been ripped away from their families. This is a not a partisan issue, it’s a human rights issue. While hundreds of separated parents and children continue to suffer, the Trump Administration is considering separating families again, but with an even crueler twist, forcing parents to choose between prolonged detention of their children in family detention or separation. This “binary choice” is no choice at all – it is another way the Administration is using immigrant children as pawns to achieve policy goals over basic child welfare and protection. We must send a clear message that taking children from their parents is completely unacceptable and should never be used as punishment.
Our business is about giving back: giving back to the proud people of Mexico. We hope to provide a platform for our artisan partners, provide a perspective and voice to these makers, pay fair wages and contribute to the communities in which we work.
Donations are made quarterly to charitable organizations who share our values. Our continued focus remains in early education and supporting mothers and children. We work with philanthropic groups in the cities and villages where we work, or local organizations who support these communities.
Your purchase supports the folk art from indigenous communities. By investing in their pieces, we ensure their families can afford to continue their important work, educating their children and new audiences to their culture.
