By the time she moved to Malinalco, Mexico, in 2005, designer Christina 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.”
During the month of October, Mexchic will donate five percent of purchases made by customers
using the keyword DOMINO to El Rincón, a Malinalco charity devoted to helping the women and
children of local families torn apart by the immigration crisis.
