Our policy of paying a fair price for the crafts gives people an alternative to leaving their homes, going to a big city, living in a shanty town, and working in a sweat shop.

2006 Colores del Pueblo

 

Since 1997 we have been working with artisan cooperatives in Guatemala. Through fair trade practices we hope to inspire postive change in the world.  Not only does paying a fair wage help families and communites rise above the cycle of poverty, but it gives them an incentive to continue cultural craft traditions like weaving, basket-making, pottery-making, woodworking and more. 

 

And by paying a just wage, our customers are ensured a quality hand-made product.

Buying socially responsible gifts can help empower women, children, and the economically disadvantaged--and help

them gain some control over their lives.
