Product Details

Napkins and placemats that don’t balk at the first hint of food stains and are available in two gorgeous, organic color palettes with durable heft. Look no further than this Stripes collection of napkins and placemats, handwoven by Guatemalan Mayan women and inspired by a variety of Guatemalan colors, patterns, and traditional weaving techniques. Since 2008, this cooperative of women in Cajol, a Mayan town in the western highlands, has grown to 20 weavers joined together to overcome poverty, provide jobs within their community, rather than migrate to the U.S. and separate their families, and earn fair trade wages while learning the skills to run a business. Not only will these rich, handwoven table sets become your new favorites, but your purchase also aids in providing on-site childcare and adult literacy classes for the community.
