Dynamic women tilemakers en El Salvador

The women from the workshop La Tejita in San Rafael are a dynamic group. They don't just sell tiles to individuals and projects, they also are thinking of diversifying the production. It is possible that they will do the basic technology transfer to a women's group in an other community, which is interested in setting up a workshop. The five workshops, which were built up by the women's association “Las Mélidas” after the 2001 earthquakes in El Salvador, produce tiles of high quality and, on top of this, their workshops are incredibly orderly and tidy, the moulds still look like new after two years of use.
