This cooperative represents a hundred women from low-income families who have joined together to establish self-sufficiency and find markets for their work. Each member learned the craft of traditional button making from their mothers or grandmothers. The buttons are worn on the djellaba (caftan) by Moroccan and Berber women but are also used to create accessories.
The Center currently works with over 600 weavers and their families from the nine communities of Acopia, Accha Alta, Chahuaytire, Chinchero, Mahuaypampa, Patabamba, Pitumarca, Sallac, and Santa Tomas.
