Abrazo Style specializes in fairly traded, quality, hand embroidered, 100% cotton Mexican apparel in contemporary fabrics and designs; richly hand woven scarves, wraps and totes, and exceptional natural seed and stone jewelry.
Abrazo is committed to positive change in indigenous communities of Oaxaca and Chiapas. Our products are socially responsible and our goal is to contribute to the development of vibrant communities through sustainable employment at fair wages. Our founder, Adele Hammond, is a painter by training (with an MFA from the School of Visual Arts) but fell in love with the people and craftsmanship of Oaxaca while living there full time for five years with her family. She now commutes between her homes in Oregon and Oaxaca and is enormously proud of the collaboration she has with her Oaxacan and Chiapan friends by marketing their products to a growing wholesale and retail clientele. Learn more about our work in southern Mexico from Adele’s blog here.
