Each stole is handwoven and hand-embroidered on the back-strap loom with cotton thread by a cooperative of women weavers in Guatemala. Each stole has a black background with Mayan embroidery decorations in the colors of blue, green, and white, with the words “Fair Trade” on one side, and the words “Class of 2017” embroidered on the other. It’s a wonderful and meaningful way to express your commitment to Fair Trade on your graduation day! Each purchase provides important jobs for this group of talented and dedicated 35 women weavers. All profits are used to fund women’s empowerment programs such as educational scholarships, entrepreneurship trainings, sewing classes, maternity leave, micro-credits, and more. Please allow 3 weeks for delivery as we ship directly from our artisans in Guatemala to you!
