CUM – Comunidades Unidas de Molinos (United Communities of Molinos) is an inter-community organization drawing together 16 rural and indigenous communities from the Molinos area of the Province of Salta under the motto “Unity, Work and Dignity”.
“Joining together to organize ourselves, we came to recognise that the value of our products is much more than their market price; their true value resides in how they are produced, in the ancestral skills of the hands that produce them and in the singularity of the raw materials with which they are made. “
Ingrained in our art and handicrafts are ethical values in fashion and design, the concept of fair trade and ecological and sustainable production.”
Our trademark reflects our community roots and traditional collective work, combining local ancestral knowledge with innovative techniques and technologies to give true meaning and value to our way of producing and of relating to one another.
