These handmade headbands are crafted from traditional fabrics by the artists of Catracha Colectivo. 100% of profits support the collective 💞
Catracha Colectivo is a group of women and young people from Santa Elena, La Paz in Honduras. In their community space, Catracha artists create beautiful, high quality artisanal products using local and recycled materials.
The collective is part of Catracha Coffee - a social enterprise dedicated to accessing the specialty coffee market* for small coffee farmers in Santa Elena.
Headbands are priced on a sliding scale. Just choose the price that is comfortable for you. My goal is to make each item as accessible as possible, to folks from all different parts of the coffee industry. It works because the community truly observes the honor system: those who are able to pay more make it possible for others with less resources to pay less.
Every order is hand-packed with care by me, Umeko, in my bedroom in West Oakland. I usually spend Sundays packing orders, and ship out on Mondays.
Profits from most sales go toward my labor for packing, shipping, admin, design, and writing (check my coffee blog!) - *except* for products labeled Solidarity.
For these items, 100% of profits go to the nonprofit organization named in the product description. All Solidarity items are marked with a 💞.
