I saw these cutie chairs in a shelter mag this weekend [sorry can't remember which one] and expected them to be $500 each. When I read the notes that they were $179 I just about freaked.
The company is pretty neat as well. From their website:
Atuto as been producing wonderful hand crafted objects in the mountains of Honduras for the past twenty years. We've become known as a resource for exclusive private label goods, and now we are pleased to offer an extensive wholesale collection as well. We are very proud of our modern production facility which is linked to our network of small artisan workshops. Our crafts people bring dedication to their work and possess skills that are unique in all the world.
In a country where a large part of the population has no work, each job is precious. Atuto serves the people of Honduras with employment as well as community services. Atuto's founder, Holland Mills, created the Ambos Foundation to provide training and business loans for rural artisans, housing for elders and food and care for at-risk children.
