Weaving for Justice                    Supporting Education and Fair Trade

A volunteer, non-profit organization working in solidarity with Maya women’s weaving cooperatives in highland Chiapas, Mexico.

Created to assist the members of the cooperatives to continue living on their ancestral lands in sustainable ways that respect their lands, language (Tsotsil), and traditions.

Working with the weavers to EDUCATE the public about these Maya women's lives, struggles, and contributions to a sustainable and just society. 

Guided by the principles of FAIR TRADE -- paying a fair wage in the local context, working directly with the weavers, and bypassing middlepersons -- to offer the weavers a fair price for their work. 

All the proceeds from our sales are returned to the weavers.
