Story Behind the Art:
Mayan Fair Trade has currently 112 members, 88 women and 24 men, coming from every corner of Guatemala, from as far away as Chimaltenango, Solola, Chichicastenango, Totonicapan and Sacatepequez. None of the artisans are employees, all are members of the same organization and everyone works together. The key to mutual respect, sharing of ideas and creative concepts while growing ones unique skills makes Mayan Fair Trade successful.
The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.
