THE STORY BEHIND THE PRODUCT
Artisan Organization: Tribe Alive
Dilcia, a single mother, goes way back with the artisan collective, Mi Esperanza—which means literally, “my hope.” Your funky new tassel is testament to Dilcia’s own fierce hope to provide.
When, in 2005, a flood took part of Dilcia’s land, Mi Esperanza helped Dilcia and her boys move to a shelter. Afterwards, equipped with a Mi Esperanza micro-loan, Dilcia opened her own business but was forced to close shop when a local gang demanded she pay a “war tax.” Finally, after excelling in a Mi Esperanza sewing course, Dilcia earned the recognition that spurned her upward mobility.
When GlobeIn’s order for tassel charms prompted Mi Esperanza to hire six new artisans, it was Dilcia they put in charge of training the new recruits. Your charm has brought Dilcia to a new level of confidence in her work—now let it bring some playful flare to your look!
