Fabrica Social was born in 2007 as a rural design school with the aim of giving workshops and providing design tools to groups of women artisans in Mexico, two years after the need for the artisans to market their pieces we opened the first store in the City from Mexico.
We currently have three stores in the city and market online and different points in the interior of the Republic and abroad.
The development of their capacities and ours, the experience of seeing all we can do when experimenting together, is the most beautiful of our project, seeing that joining experiences and efforts result in such beautiful things, textures, colors, stories that are told in each piece and how our perception of the other changes.
When we started working together we had no idea of what we were capable of, we conformed, we go forward, we are surprised by the things that result with some opportunities and provocations.
In Fabrica Social We are not just handmade garments, we are time, spaces, experiences, knowledge, love and effort to be together.
