Sacred Weavers Collective is a social impact project to uplift indigenous communities, starting in Mexico.
Chiapas Mexico, Is one of the culturally richest areas, but yet one of the economically poorest. Is a struggle to get their basic needs met, and deal with unexpected events, such as earthquakes and land displacements, on a continual basis.
Sacred Weavers offers a consistent channel of financial stability to our artisanal cacao producers and handweaving artisans, to bring you high quality real chocolate and original handmade pieces.
We are a direct trade organization, which means we pay the artisans what they feel is a fair price, and sometimes more.
We use the profits from your purchase to fund life quality improvement, women’s empowerment, nutrition and financial education workshops.
This helps our women empowerment and nutrition workshops.
Join us and make it happen.
We need your support to make this project sustainable.
These are the ways you can uplift us in creating immediate change in the lives of many artisan families from the Chiapas highland villages, home of over 5 indigenous ethnicities including Tzotzil, Tzeltal, Ch'ol, and Mayan.
Help us to weave a solid foundation for our artisanal producers while we bring you the best chocolate you could have and original, handmade artisanry.

My name is Valerie Karla. I have been walking a shamanic path through healings and ceremonies since 2012. Last year was an incredible year of shifts accompanied by a desire to serve a higher purpose. This calling brought me back to my country of origin, Mexico, where I have always had a loving connection and soul urge to uplift the indigenous communities. I followed this loving call to San Cristobal, a small city in Chiapas, Mexico.
I immediately saw a gap between the way the People express themselves in beauty through their connection and ways to treat mother earth through the Artisanal goods that they create, and the lingering strife that they live on a daily basis from centuries of marginalization, often times struggling to get their basic needs met for themselves and their families. Needs like food, safety and security, clothing, shelter, and time to rest.
What followed was a spark which illuminated my vision to create the Sacred Weaver's project.
A social impact project serving the indigenous communities surrounding San Cristobal, where the Tzotzil, Tzeltal, Mayan, and Ch'ol people reside where we effort to uplift them to improve their quality of life and conserve their original ways of living
Sacred Weavers uplifts the Indigenous communities whose primary source of living comes from growing their cacao (where chocolate comes from), handwoven and handmade artisanal goods, and coffee. Since their commercial outlets are limited, they often struggle to sell enough to support themselves and their families in meaningful ways.
We strive to uplift these communities by providing a conscious, fair trade channel for them to sell their goods and bring awareness of their lives to the rest of the world.
