Maná Color is a sewing group that makes many products, specializing in products made from the colorful mantas, which women in the Andes Mountains use to carry their babies, and in products made from repurposed fabric flour sacks. The group formed in 2001 and works out of their workshop that is on the second floor of the house of Maná member Berta Flores. The members jumped at the opportunity to work with Bridge of Hope, even though they didn’t all know how to sew. With the support of Bridge of Hope, they learned about taxes, bookkeeping, and took sewing lessons. They have also learned to shares their struggles, grow as people, and value themselves and the work that they do.
