Someone somewhere engages communities in alignment with the philosophy of "buen vivir" which is the Spanish translation of living in harmony with the community, family, nature, and the cosmos. Buen vivir, or good living, "describes a way of doing things that is community-centric, ecologically-balanced and culturally-sensitive". We try to communicate this ethos across everything we create.
We seek to connect you with the thousands of artisans who live in vulnerable conditions to boost their development and contribute to their well-being. We combine their traditional crafts with pieces designed for you, creating products with a positive impact both for those who use them and those who make them. Through fair trade with artisan communities, we can contribute to the development and preservation of their traditions. The way we do it is through products that you can use in your day to day, creating a direct link between you and the talented artisans of Mexico.

Our main goal is to improve the quality of life for the most artisan communities. Because of this, we are constantly looking for new textile techniques and skilled artisans to work with.
Our other goal is to create products that you like. Our in-house design team works with global trend agencies, analyzes customer preferences, and artisans directly to design products that create connections with you, the consumer.
Artisans analyze the textile possibilities that uphold their traditional iconography and culture in order to create pieces that synchronize with consumer demand. These pieces are then incorporated into final products.
Across each artisan community there is a leader that acts as the liaison between artisans and design. The leader scales production, organizes orders, and manages deadlines, and quality. This makes it easier for artisans and our design team to focus on the things they care about most.
All of our products are then assembled in warehouses in Mexico City, not far away from our headquarters. This allows us to closely monitor the process as we scale our business, grow our product line, and most importantly, learn.
Once produced, the goods are sent to our distribution center nearby in Mexico City, ready to be shipped anywhere in Mexico or the United States.
