THE STORY BEHIND THE PRODUCT
Artisan Organization: Aid to Artisans
"Aid To Artisans Mexico is an initiative that creates opportunities for artisan groups in Chiapas communities as well as in the Yucatan Peninsula. Many of these communities are in remote areas, and their artisan traditions are marginalized or in danger of being lost.
"We combine our passion for Mexico's Maya culture and their artisan traditions with our own commitment to construct successful small businesses.
"We've been able to connect with artisans for their personal growth and development so that their artistic skills can lead them to greater opportunities.""
