MANOS QUERETANAS

DRAWN THREAD WORK

“The craftsmanship is not about repeating learned techniques, it is far more than that, it is an exhalation that is transformed into an object by hands with a strong need for creation”

Manos Queretanas is an initiative of the Mexican government which tries to professionalise and market the Mexican craftsmanship. It has supported 422 women and their families, from 46 different communities in the state of Querétaro, in order to empower the women artisans by qualifying them in different areas of knowledge, from the embroidery techniques to the administration, and supporting the marketing of their products.

For us, working with Manos Queretanas is a very pleasant experience. Since the very first moment, we fell in love with the fineness, beauty and excellent quality of each piece.

You‘ll love to have one of these pieces on your table!
