International Mission

Tierra travels to Mexico seeking out women and men who have dedicated their lives to selling their creative crafts. Each artisan is invited to join Tierra and each relationship reflects fair trade and sustainable practices. Artisans are invited to expand their market to an international scale by joining Tierra. Tierra currently partners with artisan families in Guanajauto, Chiapas, Merida and Puebla.

 

Local Mission

Tierra encourages Latina(o) immigrants to use their creative talent and continue using the skills they have learned in their home country. Tierra provides the basic material needed for each artisanal product and provides the platform for each craft to be sold. Our hope is to give immigrants the opportunity to continue using their artisanal skills as a mode for economic empowerment. Once products are created each piece is sold in Tierra's marketplace and around Houston.
