Details

Colorful stripes decorate this Guatemalan jewelry case, accented with amethyst purple. Representing a collective of indigenous women, the Yama Aj Chixot Artisan Group hand-weaves the bag from cotton on the foot pedal loom. It unrolls with a magnetic snap to reveal a fabric lattice for hanging bracelets and chains. The zipper opens to reveal a lined pouch, perfect for storing smaller jewelry pieces.

""Amethyst Berry" Striped Jewelry Case"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

The colors on this are even better in person. Vibrant jewel tones that just pop. The feel of the weave is smooth and thick. It will not thin, nor rip easily. This bag is great for carrying essential oils. This is a thoughtfully designed and executed bag. I finally figured out that the two straps can also be used for securing it inside a pack! Extra care was taken in sewing an extra piece of material on top of the large magnetic button - otherwise the cumbersome size would be sticking out of the material, as well as wearing through it quickly. Makes a big difference in quality. Thank you for such care and detail, it will travel through many years and adventures.

"Vibrant and sturdy"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

The colors are even brighter in person than in the photos, believe it or not. The cloth feels very strong and well-stitched, and while I havent had the opportunity to travel with it yet, its very compact, so its perfect for saving space even by just sitting on my dresser.

"Perfect design"

This is just what I need for travel. The design allows you to bring as much or as little jewelry as you want and it takes minimal space in your carry-on.

I was surprised by the beauty of the colors and the quality of the construction! I bought this to be a beach bag as we live on the Gulf of Mexico. It s so nice that I use it around town for shopping! I ve loaned it to guests who also enjoy using this bag. It s over 2 years old now and looks as nice as when new. Thank you to the artist who makes a great product!!

Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

The Women's Empowerment badge is awarded to female artisans or artisan groups that are led by women.

The association prides itself on protecting and preserving the very long-standing tradition of weaving using a floor loom. The women have all learned this technique from their mothers or grandmothers, and plan to teach their daughters as well.

Unfortunately many women in this area have been affected by miscarriages and the loss of newborns. This can cause a woman to go into a deep depression. Together they overcome these tragic events and provide constant support for one another.

Thanks to the work of these women, their children have the opportunity to study and have a better future. As an association, part of their income is donated to school infrastructure.

The association has been able to grow and increase their sales, which is then passed along to the women and their families.

The Yama Aj Chixot artisan group enables women to make a fair wage that helps them support their children.

Yama Aj Chixot Artisan Group has received a $200 microcredit loan with 0% interest.

This association generates employment for more than 125 women.
