Handmade Heritage: Every pillow narrates a unique story, a testament to the preservation of artisanal techniques. Crafted without knots or curves alike, these one-of-a-kind creations stand as a stark contrast to mass-produced alternatives, highlighting the beauty of true craftsmanship.
Empowerment in Every Thread: Join us in empowering women in rural El Salvador. By choosing our pillows, you support training and employment initiatives, transforming lives and fostering hope. Our commitment extends beyond pillows; it's about creating a ripple effect of positivity in communities.
Fairtrade Finesse: Immerse yourself in the warmth of fair trade principles. We ensure our communities receive four times the typical earnings in rural areas, providing good work conditions. Diversity, beauty, and fair wages define our ethical approach.
Innovative Designs: Constantly reinventing, our pillows seamlessly blend contemporary flair with cultural richness. The threads tell more than a tale; they echo innovation, adapting to the demands of the modern market while preserving tradition.
Crafted by Hand, Woven with Stories:
Indulge in the artistry of the "Hand-Woven Stories Community," where cultural identity is meticulously woven thread by thread. Led by artisanal master Mr. Don Ciro Castro, this community safeguards indigenous techniques, sustaining a tradition that transcends generations.
58% of the people that live in rural areas in El Salvador live in overcrowded conditions. When there is overcrowding in families, there is a higher risk of certain problems occurring, such as domestic violence, family disintegration, poor school performance, among others.
300 SALVADORANS TRY TO MIGRATE TO THE UNITED STATES DAILY DUE TO LACK OF WORK OPPORTUNITIES.
When Lula Mena began working in rural communities, many of the young women wanted to immigrate to the United States. Now that they have seen that there is an opportunity for a better life in their community, their perception of immigration has changed. They feel more confident that they will be able to provide for their families without having to leave the country. We want to continue to grow in order to offer more young adults the opportunity to work with us and avoid immigration.
One of the major challenges we faced when we began working with women was gaining the approval of their husbands. Most of the husbands and family members worried that the women would not be able to work and meet the household’s responsibilities.
Now, their husbands prepare dinner, take care of the children, and offer them support. There is still a strong sexist culture, “machismo”, in rural areas of El Salvador that we are trying to change by empowering women.
