AODDM Artisan Owned
Direct Distribution Model

NABUUR 2004 Artesanas Campesinas Tecalpulco Guerrero Mexico

What’s the matter?

With the men of the village long gone
as illegal wetback workers in the USA,

the women of Tecalpulco must provide for their families.

They earn a living by practicing traditional local handcraft:

the production of a unique type of jewelry.

On behalf of producer groups anywhere in the world,

these women of Taxco and Tecalpulco are pioneering

an innovative Artisan Owned Direct Distribution Model (AODDM)

which will enable them to sell and deliver directly to retailers and consumers,

producing an advantage by cutting costs for both the customers and the artisans.

Other artisan neighbors need help generating work and income

Tecalpulco Nabuurs propose to help them make a profitable ongoing business

by helping others apply the AODDM principles to their export enterprises.

The idea is to prove in principle the Artisan-Owned Direct
Distribution Model

so that other producers can be productive and be able to support their families.

Artcamp will offer it in the form of a manual, software, and

to any other producer communities of artisans, as a model to emulate.

the Artisan-Owned Direct Distribution Model is a novel business

of potential great value for the producer communities around the world.
