Our Artisans

The heart of Cojolya and the people behind every product.

The artisans who create our products are the heart of the Cojolya Association, and our distinctly local, multi-generational nature has built relationships rooted in trust. Each piece we sell comes tagged with the name of the artisan who created it, which we hope inspires a sense of togetherness in both our consumers and producers. Tz'utujil Maya women's fierce stories of strength are a daily inspiration to our Association. Scroll below to see the people who make it all happen.
