ALTERNATIVES HAPPENING NOW:
FAIR TRADE

Weaving for Justice



  
 Our goal is to assist women weavers in Chiapas cooperatives to continue living on their ancestral lands in sustainable ways that respect their lands, language (Tzotzil), and traditions.  We help the weavers to find ways to market their products  and keep the public informed about threats to the women's cooperative efforts and human rights. We also connect weaving cooperatives in Chiapas with women's artisan groups on the U.S./Mexico border. 100% OF PROCEEDS ARE SENT TO THE WEAVERS.
