ARTISAN SPOTLIGHT: Meet Yukayma Carrillo

By Valeria Amaral

Meet Yukayma Carrillo, one of Kuu’s partner Wixárika artisans. Back in her town she could not find work so she began to sell her craftsmanship all by her self. We connected with Yukayma and offered the opportunity to work alongside of Kuu. We provide her with the premium materials that Kuu uses in each piece of jewelry (faceted crystal beads plated in gold, silver and platinum) and pay her a fair wage for her work. She is happy and full of joy to be working with Kuu, because she knows that with Kuu she has economic security. “I feel very proud of myself and my work and I hope one day my daughter will be able to work like me.” – Yukayma Carrillo.
