- Our Vision -
At Stori, we’re adding our distinct voice to a new but expanding market of products with a conscience. The women behind our huarache sandals are known in Mexico as “tejadoras.” They are part of a trade that has been passed down through the generations since before the Spanish came to the area. Despite the skills they possess, these women are not typically paid a fair wage. We plan to change that.
Our goals are to showcase this traditional Mexican artisanal skill, offer our customers a quality product, and triple the current wage of our artisans. Our respect for the people and traditions behind our products continually drives us to find new ways to connect our customers with the tejadora behind their shoes. Currently, each pair of huaraches is signed by the artisan and our hope, going forward, is to increase the level of connection even further and have more complete stories attached to each product. We aim to show our tejadoras that their art is valued and their stories matter.
