The Natural Dye Project
Hundreds of hours of volunteer time have gone into this kit from the first inception of the Natural Dye Project ten years ago, to the tireless volunteers working in the field teaching these women to use natural dyes, to the designing of the towel instructions, to our blogger, graphic designer, marketer and distributor--all volunteer hours so that the women of San Rafael can envision a better life for their daughters and sons. This is the first time in their lives these women will be able to earn a fair trade, living wage through the sale of these kits. The Natural Dye Project is sponsored by Mayan Hands

The Natural Dye Project Blog
We sent Rocio Mena, a natural dye expert to live and work with the women of San Rafael, Guatemala to help them set up quality control so that each batch of natural dye met our standards of quality and consistency. Rocio's BLOG of her time there is fascinating and heart warming!
