Mercado Global's FW15 collection is more than an escape, it's a journey into the depth of the Mayas. Set in an abandoned wheat mill in Tecpan, Guatemala, the collection is inspired by the Mayan explorer - authentic, bold, daringly passionate and innately feminine during her journey.
Mercado Global empowers indigenous women to overcome poverty and become agents of change in their communities. Their partner artisans represent one of the world’s most marginalized populations – rural indigenous women. Mercado Global provides donor-funded business education and leadership programs to help women become successful business owners. They then connect them with large-scale sales opportunities so the women can turn these skills into income. With this income, artisans provide nutritious food to their families and invest in their children's education — and the community breaks the cycle of poverty.
