alpaca shawl

By Beth created on 17-Dec-12

A beautiful addition to my wardrobe. Very tightly woven, luxurious feel, very warm, which is what I was looking for. It feels extra nice knowing that a real person made it and that buying it may have helped her directly.

Global Goods Response:
We are so glad you like your new Alpaca Shawl! Asociacion de Artesanos Andinos, our partner that produces this cozy knit, supports around 500 people, mostly women, through four community centers in poor and isolated areas of the Bolivian Highlands. Thanks for your support.
