FROM A SMALL SHOWROOM TO A BLOSSOMING BOUTIQUE
Tressa Castro, the owner of Nativa began her business as a gift to a friend. As a Mexican native, Castro recognized the artisanal talent that was found in local handmade blouses and guayaberas so when her friends requested a unique gift to take home Castro knew just what to give them. The gifts were a hit and more friends began demanding more handmade gifts and before she knew it Castro had opened a small show room that eventually blossomed into her boutique.
A GIFT THAT GIVES BACK
Buying Nativa Handmade Mexican blouses ensures that you are allowing a community to empower women living in economically disadvantaged areas of Mexico. Nativa employs women who have mastered the art of Mexican embroidery through years of the tradition being passed down from generation to generation. These women come from all parts of Mexico including Chiapas, Guerrero, Hidalgo, Morelos, Oaxaca, Puebla, Veracruz, and Yucatan to name a few regions. Nativa gives its talented artisans a steady income in exchange for unique blouses that are hand tailored ensuring that no to pieces are ever the same. With a world that is ever-changing and quickly adapting to technological advances that are being developed it’s almost a wonder that textile art hasn’t been completely lost. Nativa recognizes this hidden art and makes sure that the rest of the world can have access to priceless pieces of art like blouses and other items.
