Deborah duPey worked throughout Central America training women to be domestic violence advocates. While doing this work, she met Corazon de Mujer (Heart of Woman), survivors of Guatemala’s 36-year civil war. These women had fled their highlands and created a cooperative to support each other emotionally and work together to sell their beautiful weavings. Deborah created Corazon Boutique to vallue the work of women in developing countries, recognizing that when women have access to education and financial stability, they can greatly improve the well-being of their communities.

Approximately 20 members weave traditional textiles on the back strap and foot looms, generating income to support their families. Some of their members are widows and weaving is their only source of income, as they have never had the opportunity to study and are illiterate. As an organized group of women, they are able to solicit training and are learning new skills. Our products are made by hand: pattern and color variations are to be expected.
