Alejandra founded umale in 2017. She is fighting hard to promote high quality products from Mexico across Europe.
She works directly with Mexican artisans from various villages to help them expand their business outside of Mexico. Most of our designs were designed by Alejandra, but sometimes we want to keep the designs of our partners / craftsmen.
Umale supports with integrity and pride the production of wool products from selected natural fibers.
Each product is the result of a highly skilled local craftsmanship associated with contemporary European design.
Ethical behavior and fair trade are the focus of our actions.
We support the artisans to continue with their traditions. When buying our products, you will help the sheep farmers, the weaver and the seamstresses.
We select our Mexican suppliers very carefully. Now we help more than 10 families to have a better life.
We value their skills, craftsmanship and dedication to find the best possible qualities. Her knowledge and experience mean everything to us.
Help us grow so that we can help more people.
All our products are made from the best natural materials.
Careful and 100% handmade at every stage of the process turns them into products of exceptional quality.
High-quality wool is dyed in a process that is passed on from generation to generation. For our Oaxaca products, only natural colors such as nuts, cochineal, indigo and various flowers are used.
The dyeing process is complex and takes several days.
Each color is unique and each pillow is an incomparable one-of-a-kind piece.
