Mayan Hands was born with the idea of opening markets for Mayan textiles. Mayan weavers, especially women working on the back-strap loom, are hailed the world over for their weaving skills and their magnificent textiles. Connecting them to markets willing to pay a fair return for their work, the women would have the opportunity to earn a consistent income and support their families. From the beginning, Mayan Hands chose to adhere to fair trade principles, and is proud to be a founding member of the Fair Trade Federation.
In addition to paying fair wages for their work, programs that support our artisan partners in realizing their potential as artists, businesswomen, and leaders in their communities help them create lasting change at home, and allow the women to share their creativity and culture with the global community.
