THE STORY BEHIND THE PRODUCT

Artisan Organization: Mayan Hands

Country: Guatemala

Mayan Hands is a Fair Trade nonprofit organization dedicated to empowering Mayan women in their quest to bring their families out of extreme poverty as they continue to live within the culture they cherish. Mayan Hands believes that when provided economic opportunity and income over time, women can build sustainable futures for themselves, their families and communities.

They partner with more than 200 women artisans in 13 communities in the Guatemalan Highlands. Working with Fair Trade for 25 years has brought a change in the lives of the women: they speak out, resist domestic oppression, and, counting on a regular income, have more control over their lives; their families eat better and all their children go to school, some even to the university.

In addition to offering fair wages for their work, Mayan Hands provides other support to their artisan partners, such as micro-lending, training in new skills and techniques, business and leadership development, access to health care, as well as classes in gender role awareness, domestic violence, conflict resolution, herbal medicine, and more.

Gorgeous

Vibrant colors, nice size. This is not too deep (in between a catchall basket and a trivet) which makes it perfect addition to my basket bowl. I would definitely say that this is more of a decorative piece than a practical use piece. The details are absolutely gorgeous.

Love this basket!

I want to do a small wall of baskets, and this one will be the lynchpin. The colors are beautiful, and the weave is interesting. I really love it, and look forward to getting a few more to hang with it.
