Ixchel Triangle products are 100% handmade in Guatemala by indigenous Maya woman and men. We are committed to work solely with co-ops, not factories, and artisans that are personally known. This is the center of every decision. We believe in Guatemala’s rich history and believe it is a duty to protect cultural heritage. Thus we guarantee a fair wage, good working conditions, and complete transparency. These commitments result in high quality products that customers can be proud to carry. With every purchase you make at Ixchel Triangle you are directly supporting a family in Guatemala with daily necessities and education. You will find that each of our products are signed by the maker. We are hoping to connect you to the person who has put their love and art into our products. We are hoping to celebrate sustainable and ethical shopping, and to instill a desire in the consumer to know the story.
Some of our products transform huipils, the traditional Maya blouse, into unique handcrafted products. We are proud to re-purpose and give new life to these beautiful huipils which are hand woven traditionally using a backstrap loom. While some huipils are similar in color and design, no two will ever be exactly alike. Therefore each one of our bags is as unique as their owner. Currently we are working with artisans on making sure this practice is sustainable. Our desire and current project includes helping co-ops develop workshops and or schools to teach a younger generation these traditional practices. With many companies now instilling the use of huipils in their products, we believe it would not be ethical to continue to use these cultural pieces of art in the event they become scarce.
