Details

Approximately 60 Maya artisans from the small towns of San Marcos La Laguna and Santiago, located on the shores of Lake Atitlán which is considered to be one of the most beautiful lakes in the world, come together to crochet our handmade fair trade kippot or yarmulkes. The women crochet to generate a steady income for their families. Each handmade kippah takes approximately 3 hours to crochet. Women are paid a fair wage for each yarmulke. Artisans also receive literacy trainings, eye exams and eyeglass donations, skills and leadership trainings, low-interest microloans as well as scholarships for their daughters to attend school. Several years ago on a MayaWorks tour to Guatemala, a Jewish friend saw MayaWorks artisans making hacky sacks. She said if the women can make hacky sacks they can make kippot! And thus a new MayaWorks product was born. After several lessons in how to make the kippot rounded and shaped, the women set to work creating our fair trade kippot and have been very busy ever since! MayaWorks hand-crocheted yarmulkes are its best selling product and create much needed work for our artisans many of whom have limited economic opportunities in Guatemala. The Maya are a very respectful people and take extra care when crocheting our handmade yarmulkes because they understand the importance of kippot to the Jewish community.
