We practice Social Responsibility, Fair Trade principles and help the families of our artisans with medical and educational expenses. The artistans set their own prices and work from the comfort of their own home, enabling them to care for children, family members and daily life. We have regular production meetings and don't burden them with strict deadlines, enabling them to work at their own pace.
We also support MayanFarmilies.org in Panajachel and many other community projects.
