Sal del mar's gourmet sea salt is packaged in a hand embroidered muslin bag with multi-colored thread - our original design. The bags vary in color and design details as the artisans apply their own creativity.
from the maker~
Embroidery is a natural art form for the women of Sabinito, a village in Sonora, Mexico. More often than not, after their daily chores of taking care of the children, cooking and cleaning, they can be found sitting with their hoops and needles embroidering flowers and fanciful creaturesRecognizing the women's artistic talent, Sal del Mar created an opportunity to empower the women of Sabinito by having them embroider the bags to package the salt. The partnership with the village women enables them to stay at home and care for their children but still be able to earn money to benefit their families. The underlying belief behind Sal del Mar is that helping each other helps make ours a better world.
