Mayan Hands

Mayan Hands is a fair trade nonprofit dedicated to providing economic and educational opportunities to Mayan women and girls in Guatemala. Sharing their creativity and culture, our artisan partners have a path to prosperity, allowing them to provide for their families and invest in their local communities. They invite you to discover the beauty, meaning, and stories woven into their creations. Every Mayan Hands product is signed by the woman who created it.

Our product lines include:

  • Skillfully handcrafted pine needle and wild grass baskets that enhance the home with their beauty, texture and subtle fragrance.
  • Whimsical felted wool animalitos with folk art appeal. The collection includes barnyard and wild animals as well as backyard birds.
  • Handwoven table linens crafted one at a time on the traditional backstrap loom, or on a foot loom. The collection includes coordinating placemats, napkins, table runners and tablecloths.
  • Handwoven accessories such as scarves, bags, pouches, luggage tags which feature traditional and timeless textiles. Each piece is crafted using centuries-old techniques passed down from mother to daughter for generations.
