About Your Company
Woven Wisdom is a certified fair trade business based around Lake Atitlan, Guatemala. We create original designs for men’s and women’s clothing, boots, and jewelry, and they are produced by small family collectives using locally sourced, up-cycled materials. The Mayan culture has a long tradition of hand-weaving, hand-embroidering, and hand-dying fabrics, and it is from these that our creations are made.
All of our designs are produced by small family collectives in their workshops and homes. We have a fair trade agreement with all the artisans, and the profits of our booth fund our non-profit, JUSTA, which supports the communities of Lake Atitlan with education, nutrition, and finance programs. We also provide yearly scholarships for high school students to go to university in Guatemala.
In addition to our offerings from Guatemala, we produce our own handmade clothing and 3D-printed geometric designs. We are so excited to share our passions with you at Arise!
