Manos Zapotecas is a distributor of fair trade woven rugs, small kitchen and entry way rugs, handbags, computer bags, tablet computer covers, and wallets made by artisans in Teotitlan, a village in the state of Oaxaca at the Southern end of Mexico.
All of our weavers are independent artists, and we exist to:
- Distribute their wares
- Advise them on design trends and business practices
- Assist them in understanding the American consumer
The lack of tourism in Mexico has profoundly affected the economy, and, if the weavers do not find markets outside of Mexico, their way of life is in peril. We guarantee every weaver is compensated fairly for the fruit of his or her labor. Every product comes with a hangtag. The hangtag is signed by the artist and certifies ‘fair trade’ practices.
