They make more than spoons, creating a variety of utensils. Each utensil begins life in the humid forest surrounding the Lake Atitlan where these spoonmakers collect coffee, jobillo, and tasisco wood.Why is it ethical?Cuchareros take special care to preserve their surroundings, using only certified wood sources beyond that which they collect themselves, and a portion of their proceeds goes toward community programs, such as services for the elderly.Who made this towel?Four brothers in Antigua, Guatemala started El Tun twenty-five yearsago to preserve and share their traditional methods of weaving. Theyinherited a rich history of passion and quality which is spun into eachfiber on their looms, powered by nothing more than the pulse of theirfeet. It’s from the very beat of their foot on the treadle that these fourbrothers took their name. El Tun references the traditional drum foundthroughout Guatemala. The steady beat of their work preserves bothtradition and their environment by forgoing machinery. These towels are a few of their products carried by SobremesaWhy is it ethical?Sobremesa by Greenheart works directly with the artisans to ensure fair trade principles are upheld.These artisans forgo robot machinery for good old-fashioned foot-powered looms that won't leave a carbon footprint on the environment.
