Manos del Uruguay was born in 1968 out of a simple question: How can we improve the quality of life of Uruguay's rural women? 

The answer was in handcrafts, using skills inherited from our mothers and grandmothers and the raw material that we had at hand: wool. 

That's how Manos del Uruguay was founded, to give Uruguay's rural women jobs, that would mean, not just an income, but also an opportunity to personally develop and gain independence, keeping their roots and traditions, close to their community and families.
