  • Description

    Wherever your travels take you, take this backpack along. A great gift for the friend who is always heading off on a new adventure, this easily packable drawstring style is made from repurposed traditional hand-woven skirt fabric, still worn in the Guatemalan highlands. Fair trade partner Ruth and Naomi was formed to create jobs for women widowed by civil war and to provide scholarships for their children. More than three decades later, the grandchildren of the original artisans are still benefitting from these opportunities.
