Supporting Artisan Weavers

The jobs created at Pacaya Organics have a important economic influence in the local Guatemalan economy. When operating at capacity, the sewing facility sustains about 30 jobs in a safe worker friendly workplace, but the economic impact extends well beyond the factory.

The fabric for apparel of Pacaya Organics is hand loomed by rural craftsmen. Sourcing fabric from these artisans provides Pacaya with fabrics of wonderful texture and detail from a tradition of weaving. These fabrics are hand loomed in communities that do not have dependable power and provide a valuable source of income for the weavers.
