Liz Moffett became a part of Manos Zapotecas through her love of fiber. An avid spinner, collector and dyer of yarn she finds the Zapotec people and their way of life a dream come true. Her experience in ecommerce and social media were skills she readily offered in order to become involved in keeping the artistry and heritage of the Zapotec weavers alive and thriving. She was ecstatic to find that her belief in the fair trade movement and the beauty and satisfaction of items handmade were the very mission and tenets of Manos Zapotecas. She finds her role as Web Operations Manager the perfect fit for her skills and ideals.
