Alfredo's story

Alfredo is an artisan from Mexico who specializes in hand-woven Zapotec rugs. He would like to invest in a bulk purchase of wool, natural dyes and firewood.

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."

"Your help gives us the opportunity to continue working as a family, and to support other people whose economy was also affected by the pandemic."
