These beautiful, and functional, heat resistant trivets are intricately stitched by basket makers in Sololá, Guatemala from longleaf pine needles. They are a lovely addition to the kitchen or table for your hot dishes - and equally lovely hanging on the wall when not in use.
The Makers: These pine needle trivets are handmade by incredibly talented Mayan women in the Guatemala Highlands. Through a partnership with a fair trade, nonprofit organization these women are able to share their crafts with the world and empower themselves. Realizing their potential as artists and businesswomen creates lasting change at home, providing access to better nutrition, healthcare, and education, and allows these women to invest more in their local economies.
