Mayamam Weavers create handwoven home goods and accessories for modern living, inspired by the rich colors and patterns and traditional weaving techniques of Mayan culture. As well as beautiful, our products are soft 100% cotton, and durable enough for everyday use.
We began in 2008 as a cooperative of women in Cajolá, a Mayan town in the western highlands of Guatemala. To overcome poverty, the women came together to explore ways to provide jobs within their community, rather than migrate to the U.S. and separate their families. Since then, the cooperative has grown to 20 weavers and seamstresses, all earning fair trade wages while learning the skills to run a business.
It also provides on-site childcare and adult literacy classes for the community.
We are proud members of the Fair Trade Federation.
