Tres hilos is a brand that was born in El Salvador in 2018.
Is an initiative that arises from the need to support a sector of the most vulnerable population in the country; young women in poverty, who do not study or work, mainly heads of household and single mothers, many of them trapped in a circle of poverty.
With the purchase of tres hilos products, a direct social impact is generated for Salvadoran women in a state of vulnerability, victims of violence and poor resources, through the generation of jobs and training workshops led by the company.
“Intertwining hopes and weaving opportunities.”
Our inspiration derives from the need to empower women in our country, through the creation of a brand under the vision of social entrepreneurship.
We provide a source of ethical employment, sharing our love for design, creativity, and knowledge; we create the propitious environment to new development and change paths for each of the women who work in our workshop.
The first collection was inspired by nature and femininity, all the earrings have flower names (end of 2018), for the second collection that we launched at the end of 2019 we wanted something with more content, since we were selling more abroad and we wanted to highlight the Latin American design & culture, therefore, we are inspired by the Mesoamerican culture and its tropical climate, by the similarity in terms of anthropology, ethno-history and linguistics, for example there is a line of earrings named Ketzali which is a Nahuatl origin name, and means "beautiful woman" and has a great connection with the native and inner energies, they are spectacular runway earrings, we also have the Mayan Tweed, which means Mayan fabric, likewise, we were inspired by elements of our country and culture, we made a composition between our culture and the role of Latin women; We are strong, hard-working, brave, leaders, therefore we also create t-shirts designs with typography and feminine empowerment phrases.
Innovating and using the highest quality standards, we design unique pieces, carefully crafted by hand.
Part of our work philosophy is the holistic integration between local economy, social development and environment programs.
