Most of our designers work with artisans from specialized communities in the handcrafts they work on:

Colorindio co-creating with artisans to develop textiles

  • They support small producers from specific communities and cooperatives.
  • They incorporate the artisans into their creative process to co-create concepts that bring our ancient traditions to life. This helps the artisans to regain confidence in the work they do.
  • They ensure artisans receive a fair payment for their work according to local wages.
  • For textile communities, most of the artisans are women, and they are ensured equal treatment. And because if the flexibility of their handwork they can also work from home. Most of these artisans gather together to create co-operatives to work together and share experiences.
  • A typical artisan working space: at home, in their cooperative, or at the "taller" (workshop) space they start the day taking care of their kids and family, then they find a comfortable space to start working on the textiles. The spaces are usually open which allows feeling the freeze and the natural sound of the animals that surround the environment.
