Beaded Coin Purse

$ 14.00

Handmade by artisans in Guatemala on Lake Atitilian. The cooperative's goal is to maintain a wholesale market for the Lake Atitilian artists according to the Fair Trade Federation Principles with the hopes of sharing the beauty of the Guatemalan culture and making a difference in the lives of Mayan artisans.
With every item purchased with us, a tree is planted in partnership with the National Forest Foundation.
Myth has it that the Mayan goddess, Ixchel, taught the first woman how to weave at the beginning of time. Since then, Mayan mothers have taught their daughters, from generation to generation uninterruptedly for three thousand years, how to wrap themselves around a backstrap loom and produce exquisite cloth and other textiles. Mayan women love to weave, as weaving keeps them connected to their ancestors, and within the sacred and cultural Mayan universe.
