Artisan Impact - Rural Mexico

seamstress from mexico artisan handmade denim for do good shop

Our superstar seamstress partners in rural Mexico are dedicated, talented, and hardworking!  By using thrifted or donated up cycled denim, their creations are both trendsetting and planet friendly.  Each handmade item sold through Do Good Shop empowers these women with dignified, living wage work which provides not only for them but also for their families.  Each artisan receives training in sewing specific items, moving on to more complex pieces as she is ready.  

Their instructor, Lori, is more than just their vocational trainer.  She is also their mentor, guide, and friend.  Lori has dedicated her life to coming alongside women in this rural Baja village, giving them the life skills necessary to rise up out of poverty and oppression.  Her vocational training and life mentoring gifts the women as well as their children with a sustainable way to break the cycle of oppression.
