Hattler had been hand-sewing
original dresses for more than 15 years and was eager for a change. Inspired by her new community, she founded Mexchic, offering fashion and home accessories made exclusively by local artisans. To produce its unique pieces, the company works with more than two dozen craftspeople, rigorously adhering to the just-labor standards set by the World Fair Trade Organization. “Our goal has always been to offer beautifully designed products,” Hattler explains, “made by fairly paid, highly skilled Mexican artisans.”
