"One of my favorite purses!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This purse became one of my favorites the moment I opened the package. The colors and design are very eye-catching. Its lightweight yet can hold fairly heavy items. The bag itself is quite roomy and the straps are the perfect length. The workmanship is beautiful. All in all, I love it!!

"Nice Fabric"

Thick deep navy with lighter colored accents make this a perfect match in my bedroom. No zipper, just a fold over opening on the back.

"So pretty"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I purchased a pair of these towels for a friend... and the colors were so gorgeous, I needed a pair for myself! They are substantial in weight, and only get better with use- I love them! Its fun to have such a pop of lively, fresh color in my kitchen too.

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.
