These beautiful fair trade kitchen towels are crafted by the artisans of the rural community of Xetonox located in Tecpán within the central highlands of Guatemala. This group speaks the indigenous language of Kaqchikel and consists of 8 women who are extremely skilled at weaving fabrics on treadle foot looms as well as sewing. Some of the group members have completed a MayaWorks training where they learned how to create Ikat fabric which is an intricate process of using tie-dyed threads to weave figures into fabric. They have been able to use their skills to create many of MayaWorks fabrics and are very appreciative of the economic benefits they have gained from the sale of their products. By working in fair trade these artisans are provided with a fair wage that allows them to send their children to school, buy nutritious foods and support their families.
