When Covid-19 was declared a pandemic, farmworkers were included in the essential employee populations to secure the nation’s food supply. The NC Dept. of Commerce estimated about 75,000 farmworkers contributed to North Carolina’s agriculture in 2019.
In other words, there are thousands of farmworkers working the fields of North Carolina whose health is at risk due to limited access to face masks.
To help meet the need for face masks, Descalza has partnered with the Farmworker Health and Safety Education program from NC State Extension to provide one face cloth mask to a farmworker for each purchase of a Descalza cloth face mask.
We were born in Latino America, but raised in the States and we can't be more proud. We're proud to be a child of many cultures and now have the opportunity to support both our communities. "El de aquí, y el de allá."
That's why when there's a special occasion we wear our rich colors that showcase our heritage. We wear the fabrics that tell our story.
-Founder & Designer Carolina Arias
Whether it's a wedding, gala, a quince, or even an interview, all eyes will be on you. You ready?
Don't worry. We'll take care of what you're wearing. Our founder will work with you to create a one-of-a-kind piece that'll turn all heads when you arrive.
Our artisans aren't looking for charity. They want to work. That's why every purchase made allows them to weave more fabrics, earn a proper* income, and support their families.
*We work with artisan cooperatives who ensure proper pay and safe working conditions are their first priority.
