This fair trade kimono was created by La Estrella, a group of eight Kaqchiquel Mayan weavers from the rural community of ChuaCruz, Guatemala. The artisan group was formed in the early 1980's in order to support the widows who lost their husbands during the Civil War. They work on backstrap to create beautiful accessories and homewares. With the purchase of this item, you are helping the women in this cooperative to support their families.
