Tree of Life Imports Tree of Life Imports was founded in 1989 during El Salvador's civil war as a means to bring the art of La Palma to the American market. Since then, we have focused our attention on several Latin American communities to help provide equal opportunity for all to work, including women and the rural poor. All of our products are handmade by artisans in El Salvador, Guatemala, and Mexico. Tree of Life Imports is committed to fair trade and economic justice. We pay a fair price that has allowed our producers to greatly increase their standard of living.

Our wood crosses are made and hand- painted by artisans from El Salvador. Each piece contains birds, flowers, animals and adobe houses; symbols from their everyday life. The spiritual images come from both what they see around them and the presence of God in their hearts and spirits that allowed them to endure the hardships of civil war.
