Artesania Sorata is an artisan cooperative that supports fair trade by employing indigenous women to produce eco-friendly textiles using natural vegetable dyes. Each piece is representative of Bolivian cultural symbols and values. Founded in 1978, Artesania Sorata has morphed from a small extended-family endeavor into a business employing over 150 indigenous families in both urban and rural areas of Bolivia. It provides low-income families with social services as well as opportunities for income generation. The organization also offers adult literacy and health education courses.
