Details

MayaWorks fair trade cosmetic totes are a made by two artisan groups in Guatemala. The Florecita and solid fabrics that covers the structure of the cosmetic bag is hand woven by the artisans of Agua Caliente. These 9 women live in a rural village within the department of Chimaltenango in the central highlands region of Guatemala. They are extremely talented at weaving and excel at producing the difficult Florecita design on treadle foot looms. This group weaves the fabric for many of MayaWorks’ products.

The construction and sewing on the cosmetic tote is done by the Tzanjuyu group. This is a group of 8 women who live in the community of San Juan Comalapa. While they have many skills, these artisans are very talented at sewing. This collaborative effort between these artisans helps make this bag so well crafted and beautiful! Artisans are paid a fair wage for their work and work under fair trade conditions.
