About us

Our name, “Zaachila” (Zaa-shi-la), comes from a town and municipality in Oaxaca, Mexico.

Zaachila is more than just a company offering handmade products. We have a mission to empower women artisans.

We are dedicated to preserving the Indigenous heritage as well as the surrounding environment. We work hand in hand with a Zapotec women operated business who simulatenously work with 15 artisan communities to make the fabrics used to make the footwear.

By financially supporting our artisans, we support their ambition and drive to provide them with an opportunity to capitalize on their talents and ideas.  They are able to secure income through their own business, which have a real impact on their lives, their families’ lives, and ultimately the entire community.
