Manos Zapotecas


i wanted to share this wonderful company that has beautiful handwoven products from Oaxaca Valley, Mexico.  featuring an array of artisans who produce rugs, bags, pillow cases, and other works of art.

the first photo is from my instagram: the pillow i bought from the boutique i work at in Waikiki called Genius Outfitters, where we just started carrying their brand/company Manos Zapotecas.

i fell in love with this pillow so much, that i went on the website to find out more about the company and the actual artisan who handmade it.  her name is Aquilina Garcia, and it also shares many of the other artists and their products.  it was such a thrill to see pictures of the actual person who crafted this special piece.


you can visit their official website to see much more products that are for sale, which is all fair traded with the artisans.
