What you should know about Manos del Uruguay and why we are proud to carry their artisan yarns:
Manos del Uruguay was born in 1968 out of a simple question: How can we improve the quality of life of Uruguay's rural women?
The answer was in handcrafts, using skills inherited from our mothers and grandmothers and the raw material that we had at hand: wool.
That's how Manos del Uruguay was founded, to give Uruguay's rural women jobs, that would mean, not just an income, but also an opportunity to personally develop and gain independence, keeping their roots and traditions, close to their community and families.
Manos del Uruguay has a social aim and is a Non for profit organization.
They are organized in 12 cooperatives, each one is a workshop located in a small village of Uruguay’s countryside.
The artisans are the owners of the company and Manos´ profits are shared among the cooperatives or re-invested in the organization. The cooperatives have strong bonds with the communities where they are inserted, with a positive impact in society and families.
Manos del Uruguay is a proud member of the World Fair Trade Organization, WFTO, since 2009. Fair trade supports the sustainable development of small producers, by offering better commercial conditions and protecting their rights.
All Manos yarns are hand dyed. Every skein has a tag with the artisan signature and the name of the village where the cooperative is located.
This helps us remind that behind each skein there is a woman, a story.
