UPAVIM Crafts is a fair-trade business that is a part of UPAVIM, a cooperative of about eighty women who live in an impoverished community on the outskirts of Guatemala City. For over twenty-five years, their goal has been to improve the quality of their lives and community through education, job creation, health, and nutrition. They produce an array of colorful products made from handwoven fabric including kitchen items, jewelry, fashion accessories, bags, recycled gifts, holiday décor, and toys and gifts for babies, children, and pets. All profits go to funding their alternative school.
