Mayan Hands

Mayan Hands is a non-profit group established in 1989 that partners directly with skilled weavers in Guatemala. They are members of the Fair Trade Federation. The Mayan women create intricate, woven textiles on traditional wooden looms. Mayan Hands establishes a rotating board of directs and a leader in each artisan group. They work to provide Mayan women with a steady job including fair wages, development training, education scholarships and school supplies for their children, and vision and healthcare assistance.
