THE ARTISAN : VAYU
Vayu offers artisans the opportunity to earn a living by making various types of bags. They work to preserve the Mexican traditions of weaving rebozos; handwoven fabric with a beautiful pattern, which they use traditional looms to weave. Vayu is environmentally conscious and the artisans use local materials. Vayu also collaborates with the foundation Pro Captive Women, which enables women in different prisons to take sewing classes and to make Vayu bags, which allows them to earn money and prepare for their future beyond jail. By offering quality handmade Mexican products and supporting Mexican women, Vayu hopes to create a larger appreciation of Mexican culture, craft, and design.
