MOOTS is the Mayan word for “ROOT (raíz)”. Our company was created out of a desire to connect with our roots and to show the world the colors and intrinsic value of culture through our products. At MOOTS we provide support and fair earnings to artisans and indigenous communities from Mexico in order to improve their quality of life and guarantee the preservation of ancestral, traditional, and contemporary art made by people.
We believe that by valuing artisans’ work and providing them with respectable earnings, we can then guarantee that their passion for creating unique products full of tradition and deep seeded roots continues to flourish and expand in our modern times. All of our products are artisanal. All have been designed or made by a person or a community of people.
On our page, we share the stories and works of some of the artisans we partner with in the hopes that our customers will connect with the artisans’ work and understand the inherent value of our products. At MOOTS we support artisans to create their beautiful and colorful artisanal products and we bring all those colors and precious art works into our customers’ lives.
Our logo was designed to reflect artisanal hands creating a unique product. MOOTS's products have a special and extraordinary intrinsic value because of the time, the dedication and the transgenerational craftsmanship experience that it takes to make them.
Our company values human connection, relationships, arts, integrity, diversity, and hard work. We strive to provide great customer service and high-quality products to ensure our clients have a genuinely pleasant experience when buying our high-quality goods.
We believe that by valuing artisans’ work and providing them with respectable earnings, we can together break the cycle of poverty for them and for future generations.
Our vision is to become the most trusted company in the U.S. for the sale of artisanal and hand crafted goods to fulfill two main purposes: a) To be able to empower artisan women and families from impoverished areas to continue using their artistic talents to do what they love while providing them with fair payment for their work and b) To bring color, culture, art, and connection between customers and the artisans’ hands to our clients’ households.
