artisans

our philosophy

We make sure all our artisans are aware of the work we do, the aim of our project, and the principles we abide by. We want Magda Made to be a collaborative process, between us and the artisans, rather than simply a transactional one. We work with artisans throughout different zones of Colombia and establish trusting relationships by visiting their homes, meeting their families and teams, and emphasizing the value of their work, time, and wellbeing. While bringing our customers beautiful goods, we hope to act as a platform and resource for these artisans to share their work and access increased opportunity.
