Maya Traditions


Maya Traditions, based in Lake Atitlan, Guatemala, has worked with Maya indigenous weavers in the highlands of Guatemala for over ten years.  Their mission is to support weaving groups and small family businesses through providing consistent income, as well as health and education projects.  At the heart of their efforts is the improvement of the weaver's quality of life; many are faced with poverty and lack basic services.  Maya Traditions works with more than 100 Maya women in five established groups in rural villages, predominantly with women who do back-strap weaving, an ancient traditional art which women can do at home.
