In the sale of handicrafts from Guatemala's cottage industry, "Beyond Beads" goes well beyond fair trade -- also directly generating vital humanitarian assistance. Our fair trade business starts with Miracles in Action, a 501c3 non-profit charity that helps poor families help themselves. We buy beaded handicrafts from Mayan artisans, helping mothers earn a fair income from home while taking care of their children. Customers tell us these are feel good beads - it feels good to buy them and know that you are helping impoverished women and their children. Take a look at our wide selection of beaded and textile items ... and visit our parent site at
