Maiz bags are created by women artisans in Guatemala for use and comfort; an accessory that can add color to any outfit and durable enough to be used daily. The handwoven fabric is soft and colorful, giving off the intense emotion and personality Guatemalan culture holds -- its natural beauty.
The heart of Maiz's mission is to support The Child Hope Foundation, which is a center for children 5 to 15 years old who live in one of the poorest areas of Guatemala City. The center serves as a place for children to be free of the danger of living in a marginal area. The center provides care, help with homework, books, materials, sports, and nutritious meals. The center is run by a group of Sisters of Divine Providence.
Through the sale of their bags, Maiz has been able to provide work for artisans, sustain their children's program, and feed children nutritious daily meals.
