Hijos del Sol expands the market for Latino hand-made artisan goods that will otherwise be lost. We believe in keeping profits in the hands of artisans rather than giant corporations not concerned with the overall health of our comunidad. All of our inventory is hand-selected for its excellence to highlight age-old traditions told through patterns, colors and symbols.
Our goal is to offer you a personalized shopping experience for yourself, tu familia y tus amigos. By supporting artisans globally and locally, you help build the future of the LCAC because 25% of all sales are earmarked for the LCAC programs and events.
