Holiday 2012: Mercado Global

Mercado Global is a social enterprise with an innovative approach to fighting poverty and empowering women in rural Guatemala. By providing business development support and connecting artisan cooperatives to sales opportunities in the U.S. on an unprecedented scale, Mercado Global partner artisans are a source of change in global sourcing practices.
The San Juan Emilia Tote  is a beautiful tote that any lady would love! It has a black/ivory hand woven awning stripe and solid navy tote bag with black hand woven lining, inside and outside pockets, and leather piping.
Each Mercado Global collection starts with a journey to the highlands of Guatemala where our designers partner with indigenous women artisans to develop unique pieces that combine Mayan craftsmanship with modern design. From one of the most marginalized populations in the world, our partner artisans are rising to become leaders in their communities and are sending their children to school, often for the first time. Mercado Global’s partners include Levi Strauss, Anthropologie, and ABC Carpet and Home, among others.
