We join together for the benefit of the Tsotsile embroidery masters and their families from Huixtán.
Aware of the inequality that exists in the Native Peoples of the area, we intertwine our work through the design and production of a collection of embroidered jewelry inspired by the cocoa plant, which is sacred in the Mayan culture.
THREADS AND COCOA
The healing qualities of cocoa go beyond the culinary. Its essence lies in the comforting heat of a cup of chocolate and its ability to awaken joy and dispel sadness. Just as the magic of cocoa has been a remedy for the spirit, this collection of embroidered jewelry seeks to encapsulate that healing energy in each piece.
Each piece of jewelry, more than just an ornament, is a tangible reminder of the sweetness that can flourish even in the coldest moments of life.

We are a civil organization founded in 2013 in the city of San Cristóbal de Las Casas, Mexico. We are dedicated to promoting the sustainable development of indigenous peoples through philanthropic collaboration and social entrepreneurship. Social entrepreneurship has as objectives ethical trade, gender perspective, social justice and human and economic development.
It recognizes the importance of connections and has become a bridge that encourages the exchange of knowledge, strengthens alliances and collaborates to deepen the visibility of the various factors that converge in direct work with communities. Our mission focuses on women who are shaping new realities through an innovative platform for sustainable development. This platform can contribute to the harmony of life (Lekil Kuxlejal, in the Tsotsil and Tseltal languages) and the harmony of indigenous peoples.

We highlight the importance of eliminating fragmented visions to make way for the conception of a whole that develops social responsibility and guides us towards our objective: harmony of life, the Lekil Kuxlejal.
