  • We have had many requests from customers asking us about these beautifully hand painted products from El Salvador, and the manner in which they are manufactured.

    All these products are manufactured by a Co-operative in El Salvador, and it is by this, that we mean the goods are fairly traded. A.M. Laverty & Co. Ltd., are the exclusive distributor of this Co-operatives range in the U.K. and Ireland.
    The Co-operative `feeds out the orders to a number of artisans who are skilled in the manufacture and painting of the crosses.

    Once a week the finished articles are bought up to the Co-operative where the quality is checked. The artisans receive payment the same day the goods are handed over to the Co-operative.

    The Co-operative help the artisans to improve and enlarge their production capacity and for them to buy tools and machinery, this financial aid is given at no interest rate. Additional loans not related to the Co-operatives production are given at a lower rate of interest than that offered by the financial institutions operating locally. Artisans make monthly payments according to their capabilities.

    The Co-operative provides school supplies to the children of the office employees and chief artisans, so that they may receive a better education than their parents. The Co-operative also now gives three scholarships each year, to the children who receive the best overall grades.
