Maya Organic is a livelihood development initiative involved in developing a network of artisans, workers and micro-entrepreneurs capable of producing world class lacware wooden products, including home accessories, solid wood furniture and, since 2005, Lacware Toys and Educational Aids.
With a focus on creating an empowered and equitable society that systemically addresses livelihood & education, Maya Organic supports their artisans with contemporary design and product development. Their initiative has also been training several new artisans, particularly women in the art of wood crafting and therefore helping them to improve their living long-term.
For their traditional technique and indigenous design, expression of cultural identity and traditional esthetical value and respect to the
environment Maya Organic has been awarded the UNESCO Seal of Excellence for Handicrafts Products in South India.
Truly sustainably produced, by hand, with every possible consideration of the health of the earth, the artisans and your child, we think it fits perfectly into the philosophy of “1 of a kind” and we are happy to have them on board.
