These lightweight cotton scarves and shawls and hand-made by women by women living on the outskirts of Guatemala City in an impoverished area called "Esperanza" (Hope). Via the organization "UPAVIM" (Unidas Para Vivir Mejor, or United to Live Better), these women have helped their families and improved their community through the sales of these and other products such as cloth Christmas ornaments, "tummy pets", and hotpads / coasters.

They've established a community medical clinic and dental clinic, a scholarship and tutoring program, an infant growth monitoring and breast-feeding promotion program, and a daycare center with Montessori-trained teachers. - About 9" x 69"
