Alfredo's story

Alfredo is an artisan from Mexico who specializes in handwoven Zapotec rugs. He would like to invest in a bulk purchase of wool.

Alfredo has been selling through NOVICA since 2011. This is his story:

Alfredo says, "I was born in Oaxaca and, along with my brothers and sisters, I learned the handicrafts that my parents made. I was 12 when I created my first rug and I haven't stopped. I believe the art of weaving Zapotec rugs is unique.

"In this pandemic, the challenges increase, and we desire to get ahead. With your support, we will continue working on our dream. Thank you very much."
