Unión Progresista Artesanal (UPA)

Mexico

Using traditional skills, master artisans in a small town of Mexico started their own silver jewellery cooperative to benefit the community and increase employment opportunities. Stemming the flow of migrants to the U.S.A, Unión Progresista Artesanal (UPA) artisans successfully design, produce and sell their own unique jewellery to fair trade markets around the world.
