Details

MayaWorks fair trade clerical stoles are woven by the talented artisans of Panabaj, a small hamlet located within the rural town of Santiago Atitlán, Guatemala. Santiago Atitlán is located on the shores of beautiful Lake Atitlán. The artisans of Santiago have been weaving stoles since the 1970s. An American priest in Santiago was troubled by the incredible poverty he witnessed and set out to create a means of income for the impoverished Mayan people. Knowing the artisans had incredible weaving skills, he encouraged them to learn to weave clerical garments! MayaWorks started working directly with these artisans in 1997 and have been buying their amazing clerical stoles ever since. The artisans are paid a fair wage for their work and, additionally, are supported through scholarships to send their daughters to schools, microcredit loans to start their own small businesses and literacy and skills trainings.
