Welcome to Mayan Hands! Our artisan partners in Guatemala are proud to offer you their exquisitely crafted handmade products.
Mayan Hands is a fair trade nonprofit organization partnering with about 200 talented Mayan women in the Guatemala Highlands, and is a founding member of the Fair Trade Federation. Though recognized worldwide as extraordinary weavers and artisans, Mayan women experience discrimination, poverty, and marginalization in their home country. However, when provided with economic and educational opportunity, our artisan partners and their families thrive! Families access better nutrition and health care, children – even the girls – attend school, and women invest in their local economies. The women participate in programs that support them in realizing their potential as artists, businesswomen, and leaders in their communities, so that they can create lasting change at home and share their creativity and culture with the global community.
