About the Artisans/Importer:
Based in Lexington, KY,  Lucia’s Imports operates according to fair trade principles by partnering with Guatemalan families, artisan groups, and cooperatives to produce and develop a wholesale market for their quality handicrafts and accessories.  Globally, many artisans have little opportunity to market their products but working side by side with Guatemalan artisans helps improve their economic well being, enabling them to earn a living wage in a region where there are few opportunities to do so.  Through direct collaboration with artisans, Lucia's Imports are able to design products that are not only fashionable, modern, and functional but embrace traditional Mayan design.  In addition, their ceramics are artisan creations influenced by renowned ceramist Ken Edwards who, in 1990, taught young men in the village of San Antonio Palopo the skills of ceramic making using the rich, Guatemalan clay at their disposal.  By committing to the Fair Trade Federation Principles, Lucia’s Imports believe they can make a difference in the lives of artisans one purchase at a time, while bringing awareness to the beauty of Guatemalan art and culture.
