Poliethical Design / Social Design Brand

Poliethical Design
Poliethical Design

‘Poliethical Design’ is a social design label, where we co-create innovative products with artisans in Colombia. We tackle the socioeconomic challenges these communities face in a post-conflict country, and translate the application of their artisanal techniques into attractive, useful, storytelling design products. This project helps reduce poverty by stimulating the local economy –in the most impoverished regions of Colombia–, it empowers artisan women and professionalizes orally-transmitted knowledge while regarding the local cultural heritage. It helps sustain local communities through entrepreneurship and a taylor made business model.
