Product Description

Bring some pizzazz to your every day wardrobe with one of these colorful bracelets! Guatemala is known for its woven corte cotton fabric. The cotton fabric is soft and comfortable, with delicate beading around the edges to give it that special touch. You can literally wear this any time, any day, any where.
 
Guatemala is a beautiful country, but one plagued by poverty and political unrest. An estimated 46% are currently living under the poverty line. One of the main hurdles for the artisans is accessing a market in which to sell their handicrafts. That's where this cooperative comes in. Not only do the artisans now have an outlet for their handcrafted items, but funds are donated to several organizations in the area. "Pueblo a Pueblo," a community-based charity, funds many grass-root projects including child education and lunch programs as well as mother-infant care. “Hospitalito Atitlan” is the only hospital that cares for those living in the community where the beadwork artisans of the group live. "Puerta Abierta" is a free library that also offers reading classes.
