This hand crafted rayon fringed shawl designed by Micaela Ujpan of Guatemala does more than keep you warm, it also tells a story of a community. Nestled between the stripes of avocado and mint green are jaspe-patterned stripes of indigo and natural white, the symbols in the pattern representing corn, baskets, flowers and people. The artisan explains why she chose these specific motifs to represent a community: "Corn plants are important because they feed us, the people are the community, the basket is the one we take to the market, and the flowers represent our native flora."
