Our stylish accessories are all hand crafted by individual artisans, cooperatives and home based family businesses. We personally meet with the artists, cooperative members and families that produce products for us in order to insure that living wages are being received by those who do the work. Our initial purchase of products supports to artisan, cooperative or family business that created it. We then put 100% of our profits from your purchase back into the community through projects developed by the community itself.
One of our first projects was the Ruth & Noami project in Chichicastenango. They provide us with many of the purses and textile products we offer for sale. This project was a tailor's workshop and school with a dormitory to house orphans and the children of widows in the community of Chontola, just outside of Chichicastenango.
Our selection of accessories is always increasing. Check back often to see what new items we have added.
