Manos del Uruguay was born in 1968 aiming to improve the life of Uruguay’s rural women, using the knowledge inherited from their mothers and grandmothers and the noble fiber that was abundant in Uruguay’s countryside: wool. 
Manos was founded to give these women jobs that would allow them to provide for their families, be independent and self develop, while staying in their home villages and keeping their roots and traditional skills.
