Giving back is also a part of our philosophy. For that reason, Swimme partnered with "El Buen Coser" cooperative, a small business created by entrepreneurial women in Petare, one of the largest slums in Latin America.
"El Buen Coser" was founded by Consuelo. She was born in Petare and therefore knows how incredibly tough is for women like her to grow in the midst of poverty. She was an excellent seamstress, had an unbreakable entrepreneurial spirit and a passion for helping others. "El Buen Coser" was born as an initiative to teach the craft of sewing to other women in the community as a way to increase their income and to enable them to work their way out of poverty.
Swimme is proud to partner with these inspiring women who handcraft the bags for the packaging of its products.
