UPAVIM's Sustainable Initiative: Instead of being packaged in our traditional plastic packaging, UPAVIM Crafts is now switching our earrings to be pacakged in 100% recycled Corte fabric pouches. That means that each pair of new earrings you receive will come in its own individual cloth bag - perfect for reuse!
UPAVIM Wholesale is a self-run cooperative of women in La Esperanza, Guatemala that provides leadership opportunities, greater economic independence and education for the members and their families. It represents a colorful beacon of hope and pride for many in La Esperanza.
Founded in 1989, UPAVIM Wholesale creates and sells colorful, handcrafted products for markets around the world. Sales of UPAVIM Wholesale’s fair trade goods directly support the cooperative, a full-day kindergarten through 6th grade school, daycare, and a Montessori-based preschool. UPAVIM Wholesale's success in La Esperanza has also fueled the development of a health clinic, tutoring program, local bakery and more.
Facing poverty, crime and violence throughout their neighborhoods, the more than 60 women that represent UPAVIM Wholesale find not only solidarity in a safe space but also a community of love, hope and purpose that aspires to produce generational improvements for one another.
