Our hand-beaded wreath holiday ornament is made by skilled Maya artisans from the town of Santiago Atitlán. Santiago is a small indigenous village on the shores of breathtaking Lake Atitlán. Artisans from Santiago Atitlan are the only MayaWorks artisans that speak the indigenous language, Tzutujil. About 30 Tzutujil artisans hand-bead our fair trade Christmas ornaments. Making beaded holiday ornaments is a great source of work for Maya women. They can bead the fair trade Christmas ornaments from home which allows them to take care of children and elderly family members while earning a steady income.
