Cultural Preservation

When you purchase Handmade by Friendship Bridge® products, you are helping preserve the culture and artisan techniques of Indigenous Mayan people that have been passed down for generations. These ancient practices used by our artisans include weaving, natural dyeing, bead artistry, basket making and hand embroidery. In addition, a wide range of modern gift items feature repurposed traditional Guatemalan textiles that are integral to the identity of the Indigenous Maya.
