My Travel Story

Hi all!!
We are a couple of artisans (silversmithers) from the south of Spain, Granada (the city of the Alhambra) who sell our jewelry in the street markets and we want your help to travel to India. During this trip, we want to visit small workshops where jewelry pieces are made and share with local artisans knowledges, tools and techniques. Our only way of being able to travel is through your help, because as you know, living from crafts is getting very hard and being self-employed and selling on the street, we never know how much our income will be in a marketday and we have  very precarious economies, so getting the money to make this trip possible is very difficult without help. 
We think that this trip will be very enriching for both parties, since we live in visibly different cultures and the coexistence with the local people will allow us to know more thoroughly their customs and work methods. We want to give thanks in advance to all the people who believe in our project and contribute their bit to make this journey possible.
