Description

Guatemalan Handmade Tote

This cute and colorful tote bag is perfect for carrying your things with you everywhere. Each bag is made from recycled traditional skirts called “cortes” that are bought locally from families in need that are then sewn into tote bags by another impoverished family in Santa María de Jesús, Guatemala. The beautifully lined bags feature a spacious inside with a large outside velcro-closing pocket. All bags are handmade and one of a kind!

Wearing this beautifully and carefully constructed tote bag, you are not only showing your support for the family who made it, but also for the nonprofit organization Cosechando Felicidad (Harvesting Happiness) located in Guatemala. Their mission is to create and maintain a a safe location where everyone is welcome to come and find physical, emotional, and spiritual support.

On top of supporting the families that make the bag, the proceeds will go to Cosechando Felicidad’s programs, including their feeding the elderly program. This one bag will provide the elderly with a total of 27 meals!  Cosechando Felicidad has a variety of other services including a community center, medical aid, construction projects, baby formula assistance, monthly grocery aid, and grocery assistance for single mothers.

The name, Harvesting Happiness, comes from the belief that happiness is a mindset that can be achieved and harvested through programs that provide support, love, and some financial opportunities. Buying this tote bag may seem like a small action, but it has a huge impact on the elderly in Santa María de Jesús by providing them with a path to happiness!
