About Us

Oxlajuj B'atz' (Thirteen Threads) is a nonprofit indigenous women's empowerment association based in Panajachel, Guatemala since 2004.

The mission of Thirteen Threads is to facilitate processes for Mayan women artisans to bring about change, through their own efforts, that will alleviate the adverse effects of poverty and improve their quality of life. Our mission is guided by the principles of harmony, democracy, and sustainability.

Our members consist of women artisans that participate in democratically-run cooperatives whichc provide them with the ability to earn additional income--beneficial to both their families and their communities. OB provides Microloans to members, as well as a market to sell their handcrafted goods.
