The Manos Story: 

Manos del Uruguay was born in 1968 out of a simple question: How can we improve the quality of life of Uruguay's rural women? 

The answer was in handcrafts, using skills inherited from our mothers and grandmothers and the raw material that we had at hand: wool. 

That's how Manos del Uruguay was founded, to give Uruguay's rural women jobs, that would mean, not just an income, but also an opportunity to personally develop and gain independence, keeping their roots and traditions, close to their community and families.

Every yarn has a tag with the artisan signature and the name of the village where the cooperative is located. 

The artisans are the owners of the company and Manos profits are shared among the cooperatives or re-invested in the organization. The cooperatives have strong bonds with the communities where they are inserted, having a positive impact in society and families is very important for us.
