It's always fun and a little challenging when we are  going over our orders with our partner artisans.  We will have new kitchen linens, purses, fouta bath / beach towels and bracelets coming in the middle of April.  They are such beautiful weavers!  Our partner artisans depend on our orders so they can earn a fair wage and support their families.  Thanks for helping us! #Guatemala #artisans #fairtrade #textiles #educationandmore
