MANOS DEL URUGUAY

While creating our Resort 2022 collection, founder and designer Marysia Reeves partnered with Manos del Uruguay to craft our Garden Knit Wrap. This statement piece is an oversized wrap detailed with delicate fringe making it the perfect travel accessory. With Uruguay being one of the top wool producers in the world, our Garden Knit Wrap is made with 70% Merino Wool and 30% Modal. 

 

 

Manos del Uruguay is a non-profit organization that provides jobs and social opportunities for craftswomen living In Uruguay's rural areas. Manos exists to support the work of hundreds of artisan dyers, knitters, and weavers, and guarantee their livelihoods and that of their families.

The artisans are grouped in women's cooperatives scattered throughout the countryside. There they spin, dye, weave and felt garments which are sold in our stores and worldwide. Each piece is uniquely made with skill and dedication by a woman from a small village in Uruguay and every purchase supports female artisans from rural Uruguay.

 

 

Manos is also a member of the WFTO, World Fair Trade Organization. Fair Trade is a trading partnership, based on dialogue, transparency and respect, that seeks greater equity in international trade. 

We are so honored to have collaborated with the talented artisans of Manos Del Uruguay and look forward to continuing to support their efforts!
