Welcome to our global maker-to-market movement where, together with 20,000 artisans, we ignite social change. We create opportunities for individuals, families, and communities in developing countries to thrive through strong relationships, fair wages, safe working conditions, and sustainable practices.
In the Guatemalan highlands, women still wear traditional Mayan dress. Blouses, called huipils, are woven on a backstrap loom. The distinctive patterns of both huipils and skirts vary by region. The Recycled Huipil Pouch is handcrafted by artisans working with our fair trade partner Ruth & Naomi. Formed to create jobs for women widowed by civil war, the group continues to provide economic and educational opportunities for the community.
