ARTISAN DETAILS 

Itza wood was founded in the largest remaining tropical forest of Central America, the Peten jungle in Guatemala. Their skilled carpenters and artisans work conscientiously with a generous array of exotic woods exclusively from the Peten jungle. All of the wood is sustainably harvested and FSC-certified. Itza Wood exists to create jobs and foster positive social impact in a place where poverty is crushing. Each item is handcrafted with the utmost care and reflects the beauty and biodiversity of the jungle. 

Over the past two years, Itza Wood has added six women to their team of 30. Some are young ladies with big aspirations and others are young wives. A few are working to be able to continue to study at a university and gain professional experience along the way. Itza loves that they can be a launch pad for women. One is studying nursing; another is business administration. If it weren't for the steady work at Itza, these women would not be able to continue their studies. Three of them graduated from The Jungle School, the Christian school supported by Itza Wood. This organization loves seeing the long-term effects of development in their rural communities that have steady jobs and good education.
