Nonprofit or community organization

Last modified: January 6, 2012, 9:40 PM

Description

Y'abal Handicrafts is an artisan organization in Guatemala that supports women's weaving groups and provides self sustainable cooperatives with national and international markets.

Y'abal Handicrafts works under fair trade conditions ensuring that the women weavers are earning a livable wage. It focuses on women being the key to family development and provides workshops and general support to assist in the success of each individual and family. The organization looks to maintain the traditional back strap loom techniques, expand markets available to the weavers and promote the hand made products.

When buying products made with the back strap loom you are not only contributing to the direct income of the weavers, but your purchase also supports the workshops and social programs implemented in the community.
