Frequently Asked Questions

Are you a non-profit organization?

The Madres Collective is a mission-driven business rather than a non-profit organization. While we started as a non-profit under the 501(c) umbrella of non-profit Una Vida, we have since transitioned to an impact-driven business model. This was a better fit for us since we rely on product sales (like for-profits) rather than donations and grants (like non-profits). We believe that non-profits play an incredibly important role in society and we partner with them often, but as a product-based company, we use a social impact business model to drive our work and frame our company philosophy.

How many artisan groups do you partner with?

The number of groups we work with varies from year to year. In 2020, we are working with approximately 10 artisan groups and woman-owned businesses.

What is your return policy?

Returns are available within 30 days of purchase if the item is returned in original condition.

Are your products available on Amazon?

Select items are available through Amazon, primarily handmade jewelry. Leveraging what Amazon does best- shipping and logistics- allows us to spend more time on what we do best- curating a gorgeous collection of woman-powered goods and building relationships with women artisans & entrepreneurs around the globe.
