Unless you're marooned on a desert island, your life and fate is inexorably woven into those of everyone around you -- an individual string in a complex web of relationships. Reflect that inter-connectivity with a versatile bag crafted by the Aj Quen artisan group of Guatemala. Meaning "weaving together" in the native Kakchiquel, Aj Quen includes almost 800 Mayan artisans that came together during the civil war to pool their resources. The organization is dedicated to social development programs that include health and nutrition, literacy, and women's rights.

  • Blue, Green, or Purple
  • 12" H x 9" W (30.5 x 22.8 cm)
  • Handmade in and fairly traded from Guatemala

Created to help women worldwide gain economic security for themselves and their families by earning fair wages for their handiwork, Global Girlfriend sources women-made, fair-trade imported, eco-friendly products. By supporting long-term partnerships with the artisans, it fosters equal employment opportunities, healthy and safe working conditions, technical assistance, and development strategies to help reduce poverty, one community at a time. Become a "Global Girlfriend" and help build a brighter future for girlfriends around the globe!
