Honduras

Women of San Juan

The artisans who make the baskets for FMSC MarketPlace partner Women of San Juan are a part of an indigenous people group in Honduras called the Tolupanes. They live in a remote area called Montana De La Flor, accessible only by 4-wheel drive trucks. Most of the basket-makers come from the San Juan tribe. The baskets are a handicraft that has been passed down through the generations. It provides a means for the people to buy food and other essentials like soap. Some of the basket-makers walk 4-6 hours to nearby villages in hopes to sell baskets, however there is not a high demand for them in these villages.
