De Colores Artisan Story

Chichicastenango, Guatemala, has become one of the most important heritage centers in Guatemala during the past 10 years, due to its predominant indigenous Maya Quiche population and their traditional textile products. Yet, despite increased tourism and a renewed interest in traditional Mayan crafts, work opportunities remain few for the indigenous population, many of whom are uneducated and otherwise unemployable.

De Colores Artisan - Sewing a SmileEnter De Colores Art, a local business that levels the playing field for villagers by offering free training to anyone who demonstrates the initiative to learn a trade. The company employs 30 women and 18 men to knit and embroider textile products, with the option of working at home using materials provided by the company. De Colores recognizes the culture of its Mayan employees, and as such allows flexible hours and gives time off for sowing and harvest days.

Never lose a pen again with Panel Woven Pencil Bags from Guatemala, a zippered pouch perfectly sized for pens, pencils and other often-misplaced writing utensils. The textile used in this product is handwoven on a back strap loom, a complex and increasingly rare technique that's been passed down through generations of Mayan women. Also a great gift for wordsmiths, students, artists or anyone who prefers to write letters the old fashioned way.
