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!!

I just placed this runner on my brand new cherry wood dining table, and its beautiful. I love the pattern and all the rich colors, especially the blues and golds. Very high quality and well-made. I love the story of the artists from Guatemala. Thank you for sharing your beautiful art!

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.
