Du Kua means "dyed threads" in the Zapotec language. Du Kua is a collective made up of 8 artisan women. They founded their group in 2018, after meeting at gatherings hosted by the non-profit foundation En Vía, and discovering that they were all passionate about working with natural dyes. During these En Vía sessions, a trustful space was created for the sharing of ideas, recipes and materials. After some time, a philosophy and collective way of working was born. Each woman brings her unique perspective and talent to the table, without hierarchy. It is a truly inspired and egalitarian way of working together, and it shows in their exquisite artistry.
Du Kua creates the beautiful limited-edition collection of pillow covers that we introduce annually, and MZ Made is honored to work with this all-women collective!
