Mamahuhu's Ethical Business Model
Back in 2011, social entrepreneurs Luis and Carolina walked along the streets of Bogota, Colombia, and saw a man repairing shoes in a stall. His name was Rozo, who used to work at a shoe production company as a master artisan. With mass production moved to Asia, 80% of the workers were laid off, including Rozo. Upon hearing the story, they asked him to make a shoe based on Carolina’s design. One week later, the very first Colorines was created, handmade in beautiful red leather. And that’s where Mamahuhu started...

- FUN FACT -
Mamahuhu, literally translated as 'horse horse tiger tiger', is a Chinese phrase meaning careless :) Why this name? Because Mamahuhu is established when the cofounders were studying in Shanghai. As one of the very first phrases everyone learn in Chinese, 'Mamahuhu' has a easy and fun pronunciation. And don't worry, regardless of the meaning, Mamahuhus are by no means made carelessly ;)
