Delfina's story

Delfina is an artisan from Oaxaca, Mexico who specializes in Zapotec wool rugs. She would like to invest in a purchase of wool and dyes as well as a new loom.

Delfina has been selling through NOVICA since 2011. This is her story:

"I'm from Oaxaca where I grew up with my parents, who have been artisans for as long as I can remember. They weave Zapotec rugs and taught me to weave. I perfected the techniques through practice. When I was 18, I created my first piece. It was a rug sample, but I didn't start producing them myself until I had a family of my own. This is the art my parents dedicated their lives to, and it's what I know best. I've been crafting carpets now since 2004."

"We are very grateful for your assistance, as it will allow us to continue growing our business while doing what we love."
