All of our Christmas items are hand crafted by individual artisans, cooperatives or small family businesses. Our beaded items come from a 95 woman bead cooperative in Santiago Atitlan above Lago Atitlan in the Highlands of Guatemala and our hand painted nativity scenes are made by Manuel Ramos, an individual artist who lives in Santiago Atitlan. We have visited the cooperative and the artists we buy from to insure adequate and save working conditions as well as living wages being paid to anyone providing products.
Our Christmas ornaments make a unique addition to any tree or holiday decoration. Some even choose to hang some of the ornaments from their car's rearview mirror. They can also be attached to Christmas gifts as added decorations. Don't forget using them as stocking stuffers and for table and shelf decorations.
