Beneficiary Communities

The Arte Najel Cooperative includes the municipalities of Altos de Chiapas, formed by San Andrés Larráinzar, Pantelho, Chamula, San Cristóbal de las Casas, Tenejapa, Zinacantán and Venustiano Carranza. In some municipalities only one community participates in Arte Najel, in others, various communities. Each municipality and community have their specific work area.

Thanks to the Arte Najel store, well established and luxurious, bargaining is not allowed, an activity that undermines the value of the articles. Ambulant commerce or street commerce exposes artisans to sell their work for minimum amounts, inferior to their investment.
