Meet our newest artisan

Meet Rosalia Dolorias, our newest artisan and one of the 4.1 million people displaced last year by Typhoon Yolanda in the Philippines.

 Rosalia Dolorias is a 32-year-old mother of 5 children.  Her husband is a construction worker.  Like more than a million others, they lost their home during typhoon Yolanda and have recently relocated to start again.

Rosalia makes beautiful placemats out of natural fibers that she hand weaves.  The supplemental income Rolsalia receives from her craft is a tremendous help to their family as they begin their new life.
