Created by culture

Someone Somewhere engages communities
in alignment with the philosophy of Buen Vivir,
or Good Living, meaning to live in harmony with
the community, family, nature, and the cosmos.
It’s our hope to communicate this ethos
– community-centric, ecologically-balanced and
culturally-sensitive – across everything we created.

We seek to connect you with the thousands of artisans who live in vulnerable conditions to boost their development and contribute to their well-being. We combine their traditional crafts with pieces designed for you, creating products with a positive impact both for those who use them and those who make them. Through fair trade with artisan communities, we can contribute to the development and preservation of their traditions. The way we do it is through products that you can use in your day to day, creating a direct link between you and the talented artisans of Mexico.

Our process

01 Research team

Our guiding goal is to improve the quality of life for as many artisan communities as possible. As a result we are always seeking new textile techniques and skilled artisans to work with.

02 Design team

We find great inspiration in creating products you love. Our in-house design
team works with global trend agencies to analyze customer preferences,
and coordinates with artisans directly to design products that connect
with your journey.

03 Artisans

Artisans imagine the textile possibilities that uphold their traditional iconography and culture in order to create pieces that align with consumer demand. These pieces are then incorporated into final products.

04 Production

Across each artisan community there is a leader that acts as the liaison between artisans and design. The leader scales production, organizes orders, and manages deadlines, and quality. This makes it easier for artisans and our design team to focus on the things they care about most.

Our products are assembled near our headquarters in Mexico City. This allows us to closely monitor the process as we scale our business, grow our product line, and most importantly, learn.

05 Distribution

Once produced, the goods are sent to our distribution center nearby in Mexico City, ready to be shipped anywhere in Mexico or the United States.
