Las Abejas Cloth with Beeswax Candle

Women bees weaving the resistance.

These embroidered cloths are each accompanied by a beeswax candle. They honor the blood, sweat, and tears of all people resisting injustices throughout the world. In lighting this candle may you be strengthened to stand alongside them. The cloths were embroidered by members of Jolom Luch Maya (Maya Embroiderers and Weavers). The group is comprised of  24 members of Las Abejas (The Bees), a Catholic social justice organization based in Acteal, Chenalhó, Chiapas, Mexico. Las Abejas lost 45 of its members, mostly women and children, in a massacre by a paramilitary group on December 22, 1997. In the face of COVID, threats from criminal organizations, and the government’s disregard for their human rights, the Bees keep seeking justice for their fallen brethren. For more information go to www.acteal.org

When ordering, please specify which words you would like:  “Mujeres Abejas sembrando la vida, cosechando la paz” (Women Bees sowing life, harvesting peace) or “Mujeres Abejas tejiendo resistencia” (Women Bees weaving resistance). Each 12” x 12” square comes with a votive beeswax candle. Price with postage is $25.

Lace Edged Zapatista Cloth

These cloth squares were embroidered by the women of Luchom Jolom Antsetik – Women Embroiderers and Weavers – a small collective that recently formed in Tsabalhó, Chenalhó, Chiapas. We’re delighted to offer them to you for framing or using in another way. When we saw the words, inspired by the Zapatista movement, they reminded us of wearing masks during the pandemic, how by protecting others from getting COVID, we showed our hearts. We hope the words and image speak to you this way, too. The squares measure 9×9 inches and are $15, including postage.
