About

The idea of Ethical Fashion came about four years ago when a group of Artisans decided to take control of the works they produced and to find a way to market the product they produced directly to the consumer.

In the past Artisans sold products from Lake Atitlan and the area mostly to Tourists who felt bartering was an appropriate form of negotiating a sale of an item. Thank you, TripAdvisor and Lonely Planet for helping increase the poverty of Guatemala Artisans.

Today Ethical Fashion Guatemala Blog talks about the Highlands of Guatemala, Travel, News, Workshops offered, and related stories about how Fair Trade is not Fair and how most Non-Profits have failed to provide a sustainable means to support those in need in Guatemala.

The Artisans of Ethical Fashion Guatemala LLC have an e-commerce website for Guatemalan Artisans, — they are going after thousands of worldwide sellers who are either hawking fakes or just blatantly ripping off the Guatemalan artisans they buy from.

Ethical Fashion Guatemala LLC combats this by developing and maintaining relationships to provide a platform for sharing Artisan products direct to consumers at market price.

For example, the Ethical Fashion Guatemala LLC, Textile Co-Operatives follow the Ancient Maya tradition of weaving in which the women had three natural types of cotton to work with, one white, one dark brown, and the other light brown, called coruscate, both of which were commonly dyed.

Ethical Fashion Guatemala LLC provides tours, herbal workshops, Importing and Exporting services for producers under our DHL contract.
