Israel's story

Israel, working alongside his family, weaves Zapotec rugs using traditional looms and natural dyes. He would like to purchase wool yarn and to be able to add more weavers to his workshop.

Israel has been selling through NOVICA since 2000. This is his story:

Israel and his family have been weaving Zapotec rugs for many generations.

"We purchase wool from a nearby farmer and we dye it with natural dyes," he says. "With your kind help, our family will be able to get ahead, and we will also be able to help support other families in our village. Thank you for believing in us!"
