ATA Mexico Mimi
Designer Mimi Robinson has been working with artisans around the world for most of her career, helping to bring contemporary aesthetics to century old craft traditions. She has recently been working with Aid to Artisans in Mexico with women weavers, to create a collection of graphic textiles for home decor. Aid to Artisans creates economic opportunities for at-risk artisan groups around the world through its integrated approach to product development, business skills training, market access and eco-effective processes. ATA accomplishes this by working together with local partners in local markets, leaving behind an infrastructure that continues to support the artisan community long after ATA completes its mentoring.
