DESDE’s inaugural line is “DESDE: Panama”.
Founder, Maria was born in Panama, her roots inspired DESDE’s model and mission. In Panama 40% of the population lives in poverty and there is untapped artisan potential, it is also the only country in Latin America that does not have a fair trade hub for artisan goods. Many of DESDE’s artisan communities live at or below one dollar a day. DESDE’s artisans are masters of their craft, their artistic traditions have been passed down generation to generation and are a rich part of Panama’s cultural patrimony. This craft is also a catalyst for moving artisans and their communities beyond poverty.
The inaugural online collection will have a curated selection of DESDE’s jewelry products and home goods.
