An Idea Is Born

Since 2010 I have been traveling back and forth to Guatemala. Before I met my wife Carolina all i knew of this place was the story of the revolution from the song If i had a rocket launcher By Bruce Cockburn. As I learned about my wife's country I realized this country had been through many hardships but had a spirit that could not be beaten. Today they are fighting a new war and I have seen it with my own eyes. It is poverty. Although my wife lives a normal life the other 64% live on $4.00 a day and 30% of that lives below the poverty line.

So imagine there life day in and out. Here is what I have seen.

Family's live in these shanty shacks with no running water They cook with wood and some even have no floors so kids are forced to sleep on the cold ground.They cant afford birth control so  some of these family's can have up to 5 kids or more. Family's can not afford an education for there kids so there are forced to work in the streets even some as young as 5 to 6 years old.

Like any other Canadian I said this has got to stop what can I do?

The concept

The Mayan community hand weaves fabric from which they make many things such as shoes,handbags,linens,tablecloths etc..

So i decided to start this side company and make these products available to you. Each piece is hand made especialy for you and  is not repeated .Once the order is placed its about a 4 week turn around. You can chose colors but the design  is unique.

Where your money goes

Your Money goes back into the communty and helps with hunger and education. Helping to make Guatemala Strong !
