Fair Trade Sewing

The Gloo Factory has a unique relationship with a women’s sewing cooperative in Agua Prieta, Sonora. The sewing cooperative is a part of DouglaPrieta Works, a one-of-a-kind organization working for economic justice in the Arizona borderlands.  DouglaPrieta Works offers practical solutions to reduce dependency on weak job markets, government assistance programs, charity, and border crossing.  The sewing cooperative is one of the ways this vision becomes a reality.douglaprieta_working

We have many DPW products in stock at the Gloo Factory, including tote bags, aprons, potholders, and bandanas. We can add screen printing to your projects to make one-of-a-kind gifts, souvenirs, fundraising pieces, and other schwag.

Purchasing any products from DouglaPrieta Works contributes to economic development in the borderlands, as well as directly affecting the livelihoods of the seamstresses in the cooperative.

Additionally, DouglaPrieta Works can sew custom products for you!  (Get in touch with us to start your custom project today)
