About Manos del Uruguay...
Since 1968, Manos del Uruguay has been working hard to improve the quality of life of Uruguay's rural women by making jobs that provide not just an income, but also an opportunity to personally develop and gain independence, and keep their roots and traditions close to their community and families.
Every skein has a tag with the artisan signature and the name of the village where the cooperative is located. This help us remind that behind each poncho, throw or scarf, there is a woman, a story.
