to build kinship with developing nations through the ethical sale of handmade goods.
OVERCOMING POVERTY IS NOT A GESTURE OF CHARITY. IT IS AN ACT OF JUSTICE. IT IS THE PROTECTION OF A FUNDAMENTAL HUMAN RIGHT: THE RIGHT TO DIGNITY AND TO A DECENT LIFE.
We are in the business of connecting Guatemalan makers and artists to a larger global economy. These wonderful people are looking for opportunities, not a hand-out.
Join us in discovering the richness of culture and beautiful people of Guatemala.
When you buy from us, you are wearing a story. You are gaining connection to another family and impacting communities. We are here to facilitate that Kinship.
Kinship Market’s Products are never mass produced. All products are made from materials sourced within Guatemala. Your purchase supports fair wages, non-factory working conditions, and community development for artisans in rural Guatemala.
Invest with us. Satisfy your curiosity by learning more about our social impact efforts in Guatemala. We are always learning and evolving and hope that this content will give you opportunity to explore more in-depth; and that our first hand account of the land and it’s people will add context and a greater overall awareness into ethical shopping and supporting artisan’s intellectual property.
