Praise The Maiz
For Fundación Haciendas del Mundo Maya
Thank you for supporting our collaboration with Fundacion Haciendas del Mundo Maya, a nonprofit organisation working to preserve and sustain the artisanal legacy of Mayan communities in the Yucatan Peninsula. FHMM provides spaces and all kinds of support for local women to develop their incredible handiwork and to create a positive social and economic impact in their families and communities. FHMM plays an invaluable role in preserving the local indigenous craft and creating jobs for the local population.
The philosophy of FHMM resonates well with our mission at Tea & Tequila. As we grow and generate demand for indigenous Mexican crafts we wish to support others around us working towards a similar goal. Therefore we are proud to donate 50% of profits for your beautiful bag to Fundacion Haciendas del Mundo Maya. This ‘Praise the Maíz’ intricate glass-beaded Mexican corn is a special edition design in celebration of the people of Mexico, also know as ‘the people of the corn.
Sarah (co-founder at Tea & Tequila) worked with the foundation in Merida, Yucatan during 2012, teaching English to Mayan artisans. The months spent working with these artisans planted an initial seed for Tea & Tequila to be born in 2015 and so the foundation is very close to our hearts.
