“Alegria” means joy and happiness in Spanish. And we were filled with just that when we received our first shipment of decorative pillows and cotton throws from Alegria Home. We are happy to have such beautiful items in the shop, but we are also so excited to be a part of something good like this company….
Alegria Home was founded by textile designer, Allison Joy Jones, after she spent time traveling with her husband in Mexico. She fell in love with the rich traditions of Latin America and quickly realized that this fresh inspiration she had discovered had not yet found it’s way back to the states. With the help of Aid to Artisans, Allison was able to connect with various makers in Chiapas, Mexico and Quetzaltenango, Guatemala. Alegria Home’s focus is to bring business opportunities to talented artisans that would otherwise not have the ability to sell their products to a larger market. With ethical fair trade as the backbone to this company, Alegria donates part of their profits to the artisans we work with to help them promote and grow their own business.
