At ALMA we are committed to upcycling our life, by generating opportunities
for future generations, recovering traditional techniques,
creating unique pieces reusing materials
and promoting responsible consumption.
El Salvador is the smallest, most densely populated country in America.
Youth in this country face many hardships,
including socioeconomic inequality
and exposure to social violence.
We upcycle human potential through education
We upcycle artisans through the recovery of traditional techniques
We upcycle waste through the use of recycled materials
“If you can dream it, you can do it. At ALMA we believe in supporting the
community of weavers and in helping our apprentices achieve their dreams.”
