Your favorite dog will love wearing these stylish bandanas, which are hand-woven on traditional Guatemalan back strap looms. This loom is very basic, comprising two sticks or bars between which the warps are stretched. One bar is attached to a fixed object, such as a tree, and the other to the weaver usually by means of a strap around their back.
These fun bandanas are handmade by women artisans from the UPAVIM cooperative on the outskirts of Guatemala City. UPAVIM, which stands for United for a Better Life, is an 80 member artisan enterprise helping women through social and economic empowerment. In addition to training women in creating various handmade textiles, UPAVIM has established a school, a pharmacy and a bakery within their cooperative.
