Mayan women, as part of a project managed by a US-based non-profit, MayaWorks, have woven many of these colorful cotton fabrics and sewn these practical gifts for you. Other items have been crafted by another fine group in Guatemala, UPAVIM (Unidas Para Vivir Mejor or United to Live Better). You can find more information on them on our Guatemalan laptop sleeve page.
