Like these weavers from Aldama, a small village in Chiapas in the highlands of Mexico. With the support of the local NGO Impacto, they have set up a weavers' cooperative. We met them on one of our trips and decided to work with them (more on how this trip also gave birth to the first idea of NIRMI another time ;-) ).
Where they live, at an altitude of almost 2000m, there are hardly any income opportunities for women apart from the cultivation of coffee, especially not for mothers or older women. Your day consists of childcare, housework and gardening or cultivating small fields for your own use. But these women have one thing in common: they learned a unique craft from their mothers - weaving with a waist belt.
Through NIRMI they are paid fairly and valued for their work. Your purchase gives them the opportunity to integrate weaving into their everyday lives and does not have to travel to distant cities to sell their woven goods at markets or to middlemen far below their value. The regular and fair income contributes significantly to the household income and makes the women financially independent. A unique handicraft that only a few can do is preserved thanks to NIRMI and people like YOU!
