De Colores Artisan Story
Guatemala

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.

A great gift for new mothers, these adorable booties are made by Guatemalan artisans at De Colores Art. Each bootie is handmade integrating small pieces of huipil, (wee-peel) a traditional blouse worn by Mayan women. To the knowledgeable observer a huipil identifies the wearer's village, social and marital status, religious background, wealth, and individual personality. A well-woven huipil can last 20 to 30 years before it's sold at market and starts a second life.

De Colores Art, based in the culturally rich, indigenous Lake region of Guatemala, offers employment opportunities in knitting and embroidery to the local villagers. Free training, flexible hours, community education and the use of recycled products are all hallmarks of their organization.
