Anabella de Tenorio learned how to make crafts from her mother, and in 1988 started a company to begin selling the custom-made crafts. The popularity of the company eventually caused it to outgrow the small workshop in her home, and Anabella was finally able to hire more employees. Together she and her employees, who are like family to her, continue to create unique products while bettering their own lives.

Plaques are made of pine and are hand-painted with latex paint and varnish. Each plaque measures 8" (20.3 cm) square and are about .75" (1.9 cm) thick. Handmade and fairly traded in El Salvador.

Artisan: El Yagual

Artisan El Yagual

As a child, Anabella de Tenorio learned to make crafts from her mother, and created home-made gifts for friends and family. In 1988, Anabella saw the opportunity to sell her custom items, and began painting clay and wood products to sell from a small showroom in her home. As word of mouth spread, El Yagual eventually outgrew its small workshop and took on a staff of 7 full-time employees who lovingly draw, paint, varnish and package their custom work. Specializing in colorful hand-painting, El Yagual's artisans are known for their original and innovative products.

Over time, Anabella has trained many other artisans, some of whom have gone on to set up their own businesses. Anabella says that El Yagual has "provided a place where she feels happy, relaxed and creative" and likes knowing that she is providing employment. She says that "her employees are like part of the family" and that creating these goods is "a nice way to go through life and make a living."

Zulma Hernandez de Bustamante has been working with El Yagual since 1998, when Anabella taught her to draw and paint. Previous to working with El Yagual, Zulma worked in a sweat shop where conditions were difficult. Now in charge of varnishing, carpentry, and finishing touches, Zulma has attained the skills to be a good leader. The economic security provided by El Yagual has allowed her to help out her family of five brothers and sisters, as well as her mother. She says that the feeling at El Yagual is "of being part of a large family."
