This symbolic brooch features a Mayan family of Mother, Father, child and baby. The symbol of family is very important in Latin America. Produced by women who live on the outskirts of Guatemala City in an area called ‘Esperanza’ (Hope). Handmade from scraps of fabric left over from making other products by skilled artisans working with our fair trade partner UPAVIM.
UPAVIM is a cooperative of women who are turning around the lives of their families and their communities. Establishing a successful business in the community, generating good quality education for children and role models for the next generation, the women of UPAVIM have used the production of handicrafts to overcome the pressures of living in migrant settlement villages in Guatemala City.Read more
