Sea Foam Cotton Shawl
Be Stylish Every Day
This beautiful cotton shawl offered by Eco Life Goods has been hand-woven in Guatemala on a traditional back-strap loom, a complex and increasingly rare technique that has been passed down through generations of Mayan culture. Large enough to be used as a throw on your couch or worn as a shawl to keep you cozy and comfortable, this wrap in soothing seafoam tones is sure to be a hit.
This woven cotton shawl is made by women artisans from the UPAVIM cooperative on the outskirts of Guatemala City. UPAVIM, which stands for United for a Better Life, is an 80 member artisan enterprise helping women through social and economic empowerment. In addition to training women in creating various handmade textiles, UPAVIM has established a school, a pharmacy and a bakery within their cooperative.
