Maker Profile: 

The supplier owns a small factory and employs just over thirty local people from the nearby village. They pack the products while the Mayan artisans work in their own homes in small villages throughout Guatemala, but usually in the highlands. Employees receive a monthly salary, but in addition they have emergency medical insurance. Thousands of Guatemalans have supplemented their mainly agricultural income by producing these products and this added income allows families to send their children to school for a precious few more years. The materials used in making this and other products are widely available in Guatemala and are renewable. Cotton, ceramic, or cibaque (a plant found on the riverbank), recycled paper and wood are amongst them. The company also donates funds to cover the majority of costs for annual community projects, such as building schools. They are proud to represent the spirit of Guatemala in a way that improves thousands of lives.
