Today is International Women's Day. At Cielo, we partner with women’s weaving and embroidery cooperatives throughout Mexico and Guatemala. Groups that were formed by women for women, so that they can have the same economic opportunities as their fathers, brothers, husbands and men in their communities. In places where women were not encouraged to receive an education these women are creating work for themselves, receiving a wage through years of learned artisan techniques, preserving their culture and now contributing to their families financial future.
Hey there Cielo friends and family,
The new year has well and truly begun and we hope that yours got off to a good start. We were so busy over the Christmas period that we didn’t get the chance to launch our Bonita Blouse, Bella Blouse and Bonita Summer Dress styles to the Cielo online store.
