Neck Pillow Friendly Fox - Guatemala
|Availability:||In stock (1)|
This friendly fox can help you unwind after a long day. Traditional hand-woven skirt fabric, still worn in the Guatemalan highlands, is repurposed to create this comforting rice-filled neck pillow. 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.
