Our, handmade face mask from Guatemala comes in several patterns that you can choose! The textiles being used are being handmade in the communities of Xeabaj, Espumpuja, Chuicutama, and sewn in the region of Cerro de Candelaria by weavers Margarita and Vero at our sister association AMA.
Research compiled by the Foundation for the Development of Indigenous Peoples in Latin America and the Caribbean, about COVID-19 and Indigenous populations in Latin America finds Indigenous people are at particular risk for COVID-19 comparatively to the rest of the population due to the lack of health services and sanitation infrastructure.
The production of these masks assists Indigenous Women to stay on their land, in their community, and with their culture. Proceeds from the sale benefit the Highland Support Project's Healing Through Food Program. For more information, visit www.highlandsupportproject.org
