Seashell Pink Shawl
This naturally-dyed, lightweight, handwoven scarf is the perfect accessory to transition from spring to summer to fall. Handmade in Guatemala of a lightweight 100% cotton, it can either be worn as a spring or summer scarf. This scarf has been made by women within the San Juan de la Laguna community.
The diamonds can represent Guatemalan history, serving as a reminder of the wealthy country it was before the arrival of the Spaniards since they took many precious stones such as diamonds, gold, silver and bronze among others. Yet at the same time, it reminds of the riches that Guatemala continues to have: its people and its nature.
Handwoven with jaspe yarn in the traditional art of footloom weaving, this took 20 hours to make.
