We are very happy because this social enterprise "Juxta Nation"  of the Artisan Women of the Highlands of Chiapas recently launched its ecommerce hoping little by little to be able to make this project known and especially the women who are behind it.


In addition to this great news that makes us very happy, we have been working on  methodologies to improve our work internally, an example of this was the development of dynamic inventories; we also collectively created the concept of the collection, the names of each of the garments were generated. The sunrise remained as our main concept in this first collection, Clara, Serena, Aurora, Sol, Lux are some of the names that carry the first pieces of this project.

In the area of communication we had the opportunity to conduct two photo sessions with women artisan partners of this social enterprise "Juxta Nation" of the cooperatives "Bak-Luch" of the community of Bashantic in the municipality of San Andres Larainzar and Yaxinal Antsetik of the community of Tsajalch'en in San Juan Cancuc. These sessions were conducted by Rafa, a photographer with whom we had the opportunity to exchange experiences, we have also been making various materials for social networks to help us in the promotion of this project.

The workshops on the topic of governance continue, the women members of Juxta Nation now have the tools to organize themselves internally in their cooperative, now each group already has a supervisory board and are already officially registered, hoping that the latter will open many doors for each of the cooperative members of this social enterprise.

We continue with a happy heart and all the desire to make this dream come true, the dream of the women artisans of the Highlands of Chiapas, the dream of the NGOimpacto team, the dream of Adriana Adelante.

As they say dreams come true, this dream that began with Adriana Aguerrebere, today is the dream of many women, women artisans of Los Altos de Chiapas, the NGOimpacto team and more people who have decided to join and put their hands to work.

In these months we have been working (with all the precautionary measures) together with the women artisans of Los Altos de Chiapas in the development of a guide to work in governance with the objective that the groups that own this social enterprise can generate their own forms, agreements and work roles within their cooperatives so that later they can be legally formalized.

In addition, we worked on the development of  pieces for Juxta Nation with the groups of: "Flores de Chacté" from the community of  Tsajalch'en in the municipality of  San Juan Cancuc, "Choy Spolabil" in the community  of Choyó in the municipality  of Santiago El Pinar, "Flor de Granadilla" in the community of  Bashantik, in the municiplaity of San Andres Larrainzar and  "Puntos Cardinales" in the community of  Aldama in the municipality of Aldama. They are  the partners, owners of this space. We hope that over time more women artisans can join this dream, the dream of Juxta Nation.

The members and co-proprietors of this social enterprise collectively created their symbol, an image that represents them as a group of artisans and that will accompany the pieces that each one of them elaborates.


We are working on our ecommerce platform, we hope it will be ready in a few weeks. This space excites us very much because it is for us the result of 8 years of walking, we made a photo campaign with the aim of having images for our website and social networks, in this campaign some colleagues of the cooperatives wanted to participate as models, it was a very nice experience to observe the companions, safe and enjoying the photo shoot.


Although the road is long and there are still things to do, we are sure that in a few months Juxta Nation will be presenting itself in different spaces through the diversity of voices that make Juxta Nartion.
