As you may know, a massive earthquake hit central and southern Mexico on September 19. The 7.1 magnitude earthquake left quite the wake, resulting in over 200 deaths and leaving thousands in devastation.
This natural disaster hits especially close to home for us – twenty-nine of our artisan partners live and work in the La Roma and Puebla neighborhoods, both of which were in the main line of impact. The earthquake completely destroyed their workshops, leaving our partners to now rebuild their studios or rent new spaces.
To help them get back on their feet, we are donating 100% of proceeds from the next 24 hours. Your purchases will go directly towards helping our partners rebuild and recover from the damages.
Now, more than ever, it's important for us to go across languages, cultures, and borders and help one another. Thank you for joining the efforts - start shopping here!
Update: With your help, we raised over $10,000 for earthquake relief efforts in Mexico. Thank you for your support!
