We partner with more than 200 women artisans in 13 communities in the Guatemalan Highlands. Many changes have taken place in womens' lives there: they speak out, resist domestic oppression and, counting on a regular income, take more control over their lives; their families eat better and all their children go to school, some even go on to attend university.
Mayan women love to weave, as weaving keeps them connected to their ancestors, and within the sacred and cultural Mayan universe. Through your fair trade purchase of their fine handmade products, you too are connected to our remarkable artisan partners and help them keep their rich cultural traditions alive.
