Bright hand-woven Guatemalan fabric crafted into cute and rounded characters make this joyful nativity a perfect way to celebrate Christmas. Each piece is carefully crafted by hand out of traditional cotton fabrics and the baby Jesus is laid in a natural fiber basket.
This cheerful nativity is 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.
