Do you know about Atuto? Atuto produces hand crafted garden goods in the mountains of Honduras. In a country where a large part of the population has no work, each job is precious and Atuto serves the people of Honduras with employment as well as community services. Atuto’s founder, Holland Millis, created the Ambos Foundation in 1998 in response to the devastation caused by hurricane Mitch. Through the Ambos foundation, at-risk children are provided with day care, food, school supplies and uniforms. Impoverished elderly are given housing and care. And, funding is made available for construction and repair of homes and sanitary systems, and for basic health care services. The Ambos foundation is supported by Atuto and its clients.
Atuto’s artisans create beautiful garden objects using clay, wood, metal and stone, celebrating the long history of traditional craftsmanship in this beautiful Central American nation. Atuto designers jill rosenwald and randy ouzts each have a great eye for unique, earthy and interesting garden ornamentation and furniture.
