Trunk Show at Paseo with Latin Threads Trading
On Thursday, December 9th, Paseo will be hosting a trunk show featuring fair trade, artisan-made clothing, jewelry and accessories from Latin Threads Trading Co. (http://www.latinthreadstrading.com/)! Come enjoy wine, cheeses, music and more! In addition to a variety of pieces that aren’t usually available at Paseo, Adele will be bringing photos of the artisans so you can see who is creating these beautiful treasures and how our purchases are supporting them.
“Latin Threads Trading Company brings exquisite, handcrafted blouses, bags, and accessories to our customers with a purpose: to make a difference in the lives of the poor, mostly rural, mostly indigenous artisans of Oaxaca and Chiapas, Mexico. Our goal in working directly with the makers and in paying fair wages is to contribute to preserving their artistic traditions while promoting dignity and sustainability in their lives. Of special interest are the women and girls. Your purchase directly supports these efforts.”
