LA creacion de tierra

Creation of tierra

When traveling to Merida, Yucatan in 2014 Yvonne noticed two things while in the city. First, artisan women and men would gather in the main plaza daily and sold their craft in an organized manner. Second, she noticed that the women and men were part of cooperatives, learning from each other while sustaining their household by using their skills. After this trip, Tierra began to form. Yvonne began to study what was thriving and working for artisans in Mexico and asked herself, "What could work for the artisans of Mexico who now live in the U.S.?"

Mision Local

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.
