A colorful tassel of fringed cuteness! Tie this onto presents, or loop one through the strap of your tote bag for an added sense of whimsy. Each purchase empowers artisans working with Macvilho in Mexico.
Macvilho is an artisan group of seven women between the ages of 18 and 50 from the Mexican state of Chiapas. The women raise their own sheep and harvest the wool to make clothing, textiles, and decorative accents. The women work without machinery, weaving textiles by hand using traditional Mayan techniques. Selling their goods to a global audience gives the women more work, allowing them to lead better lives supplemented by the additional income.
