About the Brand
Santiago Atitlán, Guatemala
COJOLYA is a Tz'utujil word that is written and pronounced in Tz'utujil "Kjol'Yá" which means “between the waters”, a name that reminds the artisans of the place where women began to weave for the first time.

When the civil war in Guatemala ended, the lack of work and the devalued prices of handmade fabrics motivated founders Antonio Ramírez Sosof (Guatemalan) and Candis Krummel (American) to start a business where the direct beneficiaries were women weavers. Cojolya strives to empower indigenous artisans to improve their quality of life, to preserve the art backstrap loom weaving, and to facilitate access to fair jobs in global markets.

All of Cojolya's products are certified Fair Trade and handmade by artisans with techniques from Santiago Atitlán in Guatemala. They take care to choose the fabrics and materials so that each piece can accompany you throughout your day.

May this shop grow strong, and provide for many women.

STORY

TELL ME SOMETHING GOOD

I recently discovered this amazing website and ordered necklaces for my daughters. I received them in 2 days! Not only did they arrive quickly, they were carefully packed and beautifully wrapped. I wanted to peek so bad but resisted because I wouldn’t be able to duplicate the wrapping. This website empowers, features and recognizes women artists and honors their work.
They cared so much they asked for feedback and responded when I provided it. This will definitely be one of my go to sites for gift giving.

We all need that special thing for our ourselves/lover/sister/friend.

The sweet thing is that the research is done on where to intentionally drop our cash! I simply love the products, stories behind who creates the products and the fact that I can depend on the best curated collections.

This all makes Pennylark Finery my go-to place - and why I’m getting ready to put order number four out the door. Thank you, PennyLark Finery!
