This piece is made by Artisans in Guatemala, most of whom are women. Because of the portability of their projects, the women are able to work almost anywhere, from their homes to the local market. This flexibility allows them to become breadwinners for their families while being able to care for their young children at home.
This brilliant pop of color will add cheer to any outfit. Made from hand-woven fabric combined with buttery suede, the bold geometric pattern is sure to brighten your day.
In Guatemala, young girls grow up watching their mothers and grandmothers create traditional crafts by hand. To make our jewelry, Artisans use glass beads and tiny looms to create intricate designs. For our handcrafted scarves, women use natural dyes whenever possible. They boil local flowers, berries, and bark to create styles that are both beautiful and eco-friendly.
