A loan helped to invest in a bulk purchase of wool.

Mario's story

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

Mario has been selling through NOVICA since 2004. This is his story:

"I come from a family of weavers, it is a legacy I inherited from my great-grandfather,' says Mario. "My aim is to preserve and promote the beauty of the Zapotec art. We dye the wool with natural colorants and we work on the pedal looms."

"Thanks to all of you for giving us the strength and confidence to carry on against any challenge."
