This colorful, round Guatemalan coin purse is the perfect pouch to fill up with your money and credit cards.
This coin purse was made by a woman in Tejidos Cotzal, a cooperative in the Ixil region of the Western highlands of Guatemala composed of 45 women who self-organized in 1997 right after the end of the Guatemalan civil war in order to generate income to provide basic needs for their families and also to preserve the mayan traditional culture of backstrap weaving. In addition to selling their products through their cooperative, they also organize informal workshops and seminars to learn new skills. Your purchase helps these women support themselves and their children economically and continue their informal education.
