Hand Loomed Cosmetic Bag by Resilient Threads Women in Guatemala sewing and weaving for a better life. These cosmetic bags are created by a collective called Batz, in San Juan, Lago Atitlan. Batz is a small shop that uses natural dyes to create their fabrics. They support local weavers and seamstresses. Available in: Red with red handle, no tassel Red with dark orange handle & tassel Forest - Sold Out Indigo - Sold Out Summer Says: I met Sandi when working in a Women's Shelter in Olympia. She has been back and forth from Guatemala to Washington State, working to support economic justice for survivors of violence. While living in Guatemala, she imagined a fair-trade import business to bring the artisan goods of her friends to the market for a sustaining price. Sandi says, "The women in Guatemala are my heroes. Every day they face so many obstacles most of us cannot imagine. They are survivors creating beauty in the midst of harshness. Indigenous women have been weaving on back strap looms since they were little girls. The patterns and colors from the various regions are embedded in their minds and hearts."

May this shop grow strong, and provide for many women.

STORY

TELL ME SOMETHING GOOD

I recently discovered this amazing website and ordered necklaces for my daughters. I received them in 2 days! Not only did they arrive quickly, they were carefully packed and beautifully wrapped. I wanted to peek so bad but resisted because I wouldn’t be able to duplicate the wrapping. This website empowers, features and recognizes women artists and honors their work.
They cared so much they asked for feedback and responded when I provided it. This will definitely be one of my go to sites for gift giving.

We all need that special thing for our ourselves/lover/sister/friend.

The sweet thing is that the research is done on where to intentionally drop our cash! I simply love the products, stories behind who creates the products and the fact that I can depend on the best curated collections.

This all makes Pennylark Finery my go-to place - and why I’m getting ready to put order number four out the door. Thank you, PennyLark Finery!
