Mercado Global combines ancient Mayan loom weaving techniques with modern aesthetics and function, carrying a story of a partnership between the women who weave their collections and the women who wear them. Exclusively hand-loomed and hand-stitched fabrics reflect the colors of the highland Guatemalan artisans’ home landscapes. They empower indigenous women to overcome poverty and become agents of change in their communities. The artisans represent one of the world’s most marginalized populations – rural indigenous women. They have suffered discrimination, violence, and extreme poverty.
Through an innovative dual approach that combines business partnerships with educational programs, traditional development efforts address the effects, not the causes, of cyclical poverty. Mercado Global is unique in its focus on change from the ground up. They provide education, tools, and access to international markets so that women can build their own businesses and invest in their own communities. By connecting them with large-scale sales opportunities, artisans can turn their skills into income. With this income, artisans provide nutritious food to their families and invest in their children's education and the community, breaking the cycle of poverty.
Traditional techniques meet modern design with SLATE + SALT’s collection of one-of-a-kind pieces. The brand was founded by Lyndsay, a travel junkie who fell in love with the people, cultures, and craftsmanship she encountered exploring off the beaten path villages across Southeast Asia. She shares an ever-evolving selection of designs from her personal relationships with talented artisans in 14 countries and counting! These artisans create beautiful blankets, towels, pillows, wall hangings and more to enhance your home. With many of these artisans living in areas of extreme poverty, SLATE + SALT follows all of the principles of fair trade to pay them fair wages and offer their authentic crafts to a global market. This benefits everyone—the wider consumer pool is good for the makers, but it also means we get to admire their beautiful creations!
