Kuu was founded by two incredible women, Martha Collignon and co-founder Arizbeth Fierro. They founded the brand on the belief they could offer high quality raw materials while responding to the needs of Wixarika indigenous artisans, with a philosophy of sustainability and fair trade. They wanted to help amplify the impact of the Wixaritari art across Mexico and the United States.
The manifestation of the vision in the Wixaritari becomes tangible in the traditional pieces that they produce; it is more of a way of life than an activity. It is the inner light that they recognize that allows them to contemplate and later realize. Thanks to the founders vision of sourcing high quality raw materials, they have managed to merge an ancient tradition, in contemporary pieces that enhance one of the purest cultures in Mexico.
“We are proud and committed to our region and the Wixarika culture.” – Arizbeth Fierro. Each purchase supports the development of the social, human, economic, environmental and cultural potential of the Wixaritari people in Mexico. Kuu works under a philosophy of fair trade through which the brand expands the development landscape for each of their artisans and their families. “Valuing and respecting the work of our craftsmen, we value and respect our country and our roots.” – Martha Collignon.
