Sonia is one the artisans from our Tagua Collection. We asked her a few questions so that you can meet her and know about the effect this source of income has had on her life.
** Your name (nickname).
Sonia Lozano (Soni).
** When did you start working as an artisan of such items?
I started working at the workshop 12 years ago.
** How do you feel when you produce the items?
I feel very honoured and proud to know that what I do is appreciated by people and that the products are sold in other countries outside of Colombia. I am delighted to know that our work is valued abroad.
** What has changed since you joined?
I have made many friends and have been blessed to learn a new form of art. The workshop has also provided me with a steady source of income and a chance to care for my family.

We enjoy our time together and spending quality time as a family in our home.
