Ethical Fashion Guatemala provides Technology services to the 600,000 indigenous Mayan artisan families living around Lake Atitlan in the Guatemalan Highlands of the Sierra Madre Mountains.
We ship locally designed and created products directly to customers in Australia, Europe, Canada, the U.S., and Honduras. “Guatemalan artisans now have access to global markets,” states James Dillon, the technical advisor for Ethical Fashion Guatemala.
How Ethical Fashion Guatemala generates income has been a transparency question of many skeptics?
The model is simple, we charge the Artisans a 10% Fee of the retail selling price of a product sold via our technology.
With all costs considered the Artisans now directly earn between 84% if the selling prices. Before dealing with Entrepreneurs Artisans earned less then 20%.
