Guatemala Ceramic Hearts

These ceramic hearts are so charming! When you touch one of these hearts, you feel connected to the Mayan woman who made it. They feel great to hold and are a wonderful token to show you care. Perfect gifts for any holiday or just to make any day special! 

Chinautla, located eight miles north of Guatemala City, sits along a winding road in mountainous terrain. Life has remained the same for hundreds of years for the Maya speaking population. And their traditions of working in clay have been passed down from generation to generation since pre-Columbian times. 

With the help of the Inter-American Development Bank and crafts experts in Guatemala City, the women artisans are learning new, more environmentally friendly techniques and using better materials for producing ceramics. Access to new markets has improved their lives, environment and makes their age-old ceramic traditions more sustainable. 

Dimensions: 3.5" high x 3.5" wide x .75" deep
Because each heart is made by hand, each is unique. Sizes and finish will vary. All are beautiful!

Handmade in Guatemala
