Each bag is handwoven by Mayan women in a beadwork cooperative we collaborate with. It takes four days from start to finish and is a long process that requires patience and dedication. You can be sure that each bag has been made with devotion and love.
To get a little sense of the ambience check out this video we made in november.
Right now all our beadwork has given full time employment to Bernabela, Marí, Chonita, Julia and Isabel - meet them here
Measures 15 x 20 cm. Hanger 117cm (made from beads and fish thread - very durable, you can knot it to adjust size of length)
The extra good
The products from the women of the beadwork coop gives back twice — not only are they paid more than three times as much for their work, but part of the money that is generated goes into an project for isolated elderly people in Santiago Atítlan. Every tuesday and friday elderly people from around the town can come and pick up tortillas, beans, sugar and coffee to last for three days.
