Delfina's story

Delfina is an artisan from Mexico who specializes in Zapotec wool rugs.

She would like to invest in a bulk purchase of raw materials, including wool and dyes, bring on additional weavers at her workshop, and acquire new stainless steel tubs. Delfina has been selling through NOVICA since 2011. This is her story:

Delfina from Mexico grew up with parents who were Zapotec rug artisans.

"When I was 18, I created my first piece. This is the art my parents dedicated their lives to, and it's what I know best.

Thanks to everyone who makes this loan possible. With your help, we continue to share our cultural heritage that we love so much."
