Handmade Felt Ornaments from la Puerta Abierta

Each of these ornaments has been handcrafted by the mothers of the students attending la Puerta Abierta school in Santíago Atítlan, Guatemala. Every animal is one-of-a-kind, with love sewn into every stitch, and embellished with pieces of Corte (traditional Mayan fabric). All sales support the non-profit school, library, and community center's work.

Each ornament hangs approx 7-9” long, depending on the size of the animal & the length of the hanging loop.
The exceptions are the wee Avo-Cat-Do that hangs approx 5” long and the flamboyant Quetzal that hangs approx 11.5” long.
Corte fabric and stitching detail varies on each piece.

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!
