Alfredo's story

Alfredo is a weaver from Mexico who specializes in hand-woven Zapotec rugs. He would like to purchase bulk quantities 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." "Many thanks, as this microcredit allows me to carry forward our traditions and continue making our dreams a reality."
