Meet Alejandra

Alejandra is from San Juan Chamula, Chiapas, Mexico.  San Juan Chamula is a pueblo famous for its artisan communities.  She’s 45 years old and for the past 30 years she’s made bracelets, hand braided belts, and embroidered blouses among other types of textiles.  During the day, she takes care of her granddaughter while her daughter embroiders blouses.  Alejandra’s dream is to one day open a handicrafts store where she can sell her products, but given the high cost of renting a commercial location, she hasn’t been able to.  Thanks to the local work that AMOR Handmade has given her, she’s been able to contribute economically to her household by weaving textiles for our dog collars from home while caring for her granddaughter.
