Description

The women who made this cool backpack live in Santiago Atitlan, Guatemala in a small village. To arrive there you take a bus, then a boat, then a tuk tuk, and then walk quite a ways. The women were affected by the floods and mudslides in 2011. Many lost their homes. Everyone knew someone who died or was injured. The income from making your backpack enables them to rebuild their lives.
