A LABOR OF LOVE
ALMA is a mission-based brand from El Salvador dedicated to creating ethical and sustainable accessories and homeware with 100% recycled plastic thread. Made by hand from start to finish, each piece is handwoven with love by artisans and students using locally sourced resources and renewable materials in a fair trade environment. Our hope is to create opportunities and economic development through joyful handmade accessories while supporting the artisans that weave our products and the traditions and techniques used to create them. Established in 2015 by Maria Elena Padilla and Alesandra Tona with a long term view of creating beautiful products while making a difference in their country, ALMA is a family owned company, proud of the impact its work has on the people, communities and the environment operating with transparency to promote positive social practices. We upcycle human potential through education by granting young students a university scholarship and providing safe working conditions to the artisans that make up the ALMA family.
