Why we  Ketzali

Ketzali is an eco-friendly accessories company that produces handmade products using traditional Guatemalan skills. The company is owned by Tewchibal S.A. with headquarters in Guatemala. The products now offered are hand-woven scarves, ponchos, and tote bags created by independent artisans and women's co-operatives. They have the privilege to work with more than 36 artisans in the development and production of Ketzali scarves.

They help several Guatemalan women's co-operatives with design & product quality seminars that help them improve and return value to the handmade product. These seminars give technical advice for the development of new textiles and clothing that help increase production and create new work sources for women and men contributing to decrease poverty and immigration to other countries.

Ketzali's Mission is to engage in working hand-in-hand with local artisans who create Ketzali unique products, in order to increase their income, work environment, and living standards.

By producing our different collections, their artisans not only benefit themselves, but their families and communities by changing their living standards, enhancing mutual respect among artisans, and appreciating more their skills.

Ketzali works with different weavers (women and men) from different Guatemalan towns who are either independent artisans or belong to co-operatives. Ketzali does not only encourage their artisans to create products with high quality, they encourage them to be more open to creativity and new techniques.

Ketzali commits to the following working conditions with their artisans:

  • Gender equality
  • No forced or slave employment
  • No discrimination
  • No child labor
  • Payment of a living wage
  • Because each item is made by hand please allow 8-10 business days for your goodies to arrive.
