About Us

Handmade by Friendship Bridge® is a program of the nonprofit social enterprise Friendship Bridge. We offer opportunities for Indigenous Mayan artisans in Guatemala to express their creativity and preserve their culture through unique products they make by hand. Our program allows artisans to create more economic opportunities for themselves, their families, and their communities. Our brand allows our artisans the chance to reach larger markets beyond their local marketplaces.

Your purchase of Handmade by Friendship Bridge® products allows low-income women in Guatemala to keep their children in school longer, feed their families healthier food, and improve their living conditions, which creates generational change.
