4 Bags from Guatemala you won't be able to resist that create jobs

You can never have too many bags. And we've got plenty to choose from in our Fair Trade Shop; whether it's purses, clutches, totes, or weekender bags. The artisan co-op, Mayamam Weavers, is a group of women from Guatemala who refuse to leave their home country and families behind to make a living. So they made a way to support themselves and their families while staying in their communities. They weave all of their products by hand on looms using different techniques and tie in their Mayan culture.
