Bixi Awotan: The example of a business that empowers women

March is the month in which International Women's Day is commemorated. Year after year we seek to raise awareness about gender equality and equal opportunities for a sustainable future. That is why it is important to tell the story of Bixi Awotan: The example of a business that empowers women.

Bixi awotan is a family business made up mostly of women.
It started around 2006 with Noelia, Maria, Saraí and Uriel Torres, but without the idea that it would become a business. Noelia and Maria Torres were studying fashion design and had to carry out different projects creating products. They always focused on leather bags and accessories, so their friends began to ask them to sell the pieces they had designed, and that's how more people began to request their products and spread the word.

Later the demand was growing and it was necessary to enlarge the team as well, so Saraí Torres joined in charge of sales and her brother Uriel in the production area. The essence of Bixi Awotan products is the care in every detail, from the choice of each of the materials, to the design, always preserving handcrafted details that make each piece unique and unrepeatable. But also the essence of Bixi Awotan is teamwork and perseverance to achieve our goals, which is mostly thanks to the talent of the women we have in our team. That is why here we share with you many of the secrets that have led us to be a female entrepreneurship that is in the hearts of our customers.
