For many years my mentality has always been to help many people around me, and I will never forget the values that my grandmother inherits from me, one of them is always to share with the people who need it.
This project was born in Montecristi, land with great potential in its excellent artisans, but forgotten by its governors, a place that many people carry great talent in their hands, at the time I decided to perform and present myself before you, I always told God, if one day you give me the opportunity to create something, I know I will do it for the good of all , as well as one of my purposes to practice fair trade with my fellow craftsmen.
I remember the day that together with all of them I told him that everything would be fine, at the time of a great pandemic that threatened the world, then those sincere and humble smiles gave me more desire to continue to achieve great achievements.
I have been in straw hats all my life, my parents are artisans with more than 25 years of experience that thanks to them I have managed to make myself known, the support has always been mutual, remembering that they will always be my guide to success.
During my years this work of making hats of fine strands I have known many people who would like to help, in our workshop we visit daily approximately 30 artisans every Saturday, with the aim of offering their products, there are days where we have the purchasing power to buy, but there are also days when there is no capital.
In everything takes my work I have witnessed to observe and share in their homes of our weavers, where sometimes you need a plate of food, just my parents make small donations according to my budget and the most beautiful thing is how they pay you, with a smile that fills you with pride in doing a work of God , help others.
This message is shared with you so that you know the reality that many artisans in Ecuador pass, I take your word and count on your support, I am sure there are people of good heart will help us, that, destined for our artisans and of course you will get a photo with a smile that is worth millions, thank you very much.
