    Manos del Uruguay was born in 1968 out of the question: How is it possible to improve the quality of life of Uruguay's rural women? 

    The answer was in handcrafts, using skills inherited from our mothers and grandmothers and the raw material that we had at hand: wool. 

    That's how Manos del Uruguay was founded, to give Uruguay's rural women jobs, that would mean, not just an income, but also an opportunity to personally develop and gain independence, keeping their roots and traditions, close to their community and families.

    Every Yarn 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 yarn there is a woman, a story.

    Manos del Uruguay is a member of the WFTO, World Fair Trade Organization since 2009.   Fair Trade is a trading partnership, based on dialogue, transparency and respect, that seeks greater equity in international trade.
