Fair Trade Practices

Beyond Beads goes beyond fair trade - offering women in Guatamala fair wages for the craftsmenship

Beyond Beads believes every artisan should be fairly compensated for their handcrafted jewelry. Our fair-trade philosophy is based on the following practices:

  1. Pay a fair price on timely basis.
  2. Provide capacity building.
  3. Promote gender equality and non-discrimination.
  4. Create opportunities for economically disadvantaged Guatemalan women.
  5. Support good working conditions.
