AT MADDA STUDIO WE ARE COMMITTED TO SOURCING SUSTAINABLE MATERIALS AND SUPPORTING LOCAL COMMUNITIES BY PROVIDING STABLE EMPLOYMENT TO THE PEOPLE WITH WHOM WE WORK
Wool is the raw material of our products and the soul/heart of our work. For the volume of wool we need for our projects, we work closely with the nonprofit association El Camino de Los Altos. El Camino de Los Altos is located in San Cristobal de Las Casas, Chiapas, and comprises 130 women textile artisans.
We've collaborated with El Camino de los Altos to develop a range of wool tones that we currently use in our textiles. Most recently, Madda Studio worked with the association to secure funding for the Wool Project from Los Amigos de Arte Popular.
The funds raised for the Wool Project assist in further developing the group of the spinners in Bautista Chico, a Chamula ethnic group that is part of the association El Camino de los Altos. These funds were used for providing tools, training, and raw materials to support their business.
