Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

Our past has been difficult and a bit sad. We lived through the civil war that Guatemala suffered for so many years. We were caught between both sides, the rebels and the army. It was a time of great anxiety and pain. Many families were separated by the violence, by kidnappings, murder and exile. We are survivors, orphans, widows. But we are strong women and highly motivated to continue struggling and to find happiness.

The group is a network of many women artisans throughout several communities. They work together to produce large numbers of beautiful pieces and all support each other in times of need. Overall, there are about 400 women artisans in their network.

Several women in the group or their family members suffer from diabetes and other diseases. Some conditions are so severe that they stay and work from home to rest or to take care of ill family members.

Our motivation is strong — our families and our children. We want to be able to send them through school so they can become who they want to be in life, so they can fulfill their dreams.

Learning the traditional techniques from their mothers, who learned it from their mothers, they incorporate a wide variety of beautiful products with traditional patterns and techniques.

Women United for Artisan Development are made up of women of all ages. Many of which have children or grandchildren they support.

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

I live in Australia and my daughter lives in Park City Utah in the mountains. When I saw this amazing table runner, I just knew she would love it! We FaceTimed this morning and she proudly showed me her dinner table all set for guests with this exquisite runner lighting up her table! Moni Australia
