Juxta Nation is a unique social enterprise that empowers artisan women from the Los Altos region of Chiapas through a digital platform that showcases their contemporary textiles made with ancestral techniques. Our mission is to encourage autonomy and self-management among indigenous women by providing them with entrepreneurial opportunities to run their small businesses and become major business partners of our platform.

We currently collaborate with nearly 50 artisan women from Chiapas who specialize in backstrap weaving, brocade weaving, and embroidery, and who have Mayan identity and origin from the Tsotsil and Tseltal groups. Since our inception, we have been committed to transparent, traceable, multinational narratives, and equal relationships that promote the empowerment of those who participate.

Juxta Nation is a partnership between NGOimpacto and local communities in Chiapas. NGOimpacto is an organization that is dedicated to the sustainable development of native peoples and the empowerment and autonomy of women and communities in the Los Altos region of Chiapas, to strengthen their economy and the economies of their families through fair and ethical trade. Our core values are inspired by the Mayan philosophy of Lekil Kuxlejal, which embodies the harmony of life and the spirit of personal and collective well-being.
