About The Artisans
The purpose of Manos Zapotecas is to perpetuate the beautiful traditions of the Zapotec artisans and improve their lives by connecting them with socially conscious consumers around the globe.
Manos Zapotecas was born of a belief that commerce can, and should, change lives for the better. What began as a wild idea to sell Zapotec bags globally, in a village where most of the women had never even left the state, has grown into a fair trade brand run by a team of five women in the US that supports over 50 weavers in Oaxaca.
The team strives to make a positive impact on the lives and communities of the artisans, by nurturing lasting relationships and always abiding by fair trade principles.
Each bag holds an element of discovery. From the significance of the Zapotec designs, to the bold color combinations, and most importantly, the distinct story of the artisan who created it.
