Woven Wisdom is a holistic network supporting indigenous artisans in Central America.
Our designers work directly with artisans to create original designs using traditional methods. The sales provide artisans consistent work and income. The proceeds from each purchase continue to fund our programs. Our customers receive high quality and unique art with deep connection and purpose. Everyone wins!
Our philosophical model is the benefit of All. Together we can create abundance for all people involved. We go above and beyond Fair Trade principles, creating a direct and transparent chain of producers, production, and products:
PERSONAL FINANCIAL EMPOWERMENT
JUSTA opened an email account for each Collective. The artisans then learned how to take their knowledge of tracking production on paper and apply it to online tools. All production tracking now takes place online and can be shared with artisans and organizers at anytime and anywhere.
HEALTHY LIVING EMPOWERMENT
We provide artisans with interest free loans for medical emergencies, free eye exams, and access to all Comida Vida programs. The Comida Vida program is a series of workshops with the goal to educate and empower reconnection in all aspects of personal and family health and nutrition.
