Every Ixchel Triangle item that is purchased directly supports a family in Guatemala. A portion of the proceeds is given to every artisan who participated in the construction of these 100% hand-made Ixchel's creations. The artisans are paid above market wages for their talents, and thrive as highly valued members of our team. There is great pride in personally knowing and working with every person who has transformed these traditional Huipils and Cortes' (Mayan skirts). It is extremely exciting and rewarding to renew the textiles’ life and to continue its story.
Ixchel Triangle also believes that knowledge is freedom. The company is committed to helping those who want to better themselves through education. It is the company’s great pleasure to help fund education of children in Guatemala. For example José Mario, the oldest of three siblings, is an exemplary student. He is now able to continue his education and pursue his passion of becoming an architect because of Ixchel Triangle’s support.
