Maya Works is a non-profit organization that works with many Mayan artisan communities in Guatemala. The organization works towards finding the right marketing platform for the artisans and their products. Maya Works believes in community development through economic development, and the organization’s ultimate goal is to overcome poverty and illiteracy and to create a fair marketplace where artisans may benefit directly from their work.

Available in traditional Mayan stripes and colors, this light and useful backpack can also be used as a sling bag and is sure to add style and comfort to your travels.

Artisans from Xetonox use traditional foot treadle looms to weave the fabric and then sew it into useful products such as this backpack. The non-profit organization Mayaworks supports this and other artisan communities in the central highlands of Guatemala through loans, scholarships and assistance in bringing their products to market.
