CreArte was established by CRECER in 2000 to improve the living conditions of small Guatemalan handicraft producers, and it is the craft division of International Fair Trade Company. CreArte supports 400 producers who are organized in cooperatives, social associations, solidarity groups and family workshops.
Products are handmade and mainly produced in small villages by indigenous women. Their lines include personal accessories, fabric, home and garden products. The production involves indigenous women who combine traditional techniques with contemporary design elements. Most work with wool and textiles; they weave, knit, crochet and sew.
CreArte focuses on community development by building competitive business models that are economically viable and socially and environmentally responsible. With their services and activities, they build producer capacity. Women artisans can earn a livelihood while at the same time caring for their children.

My bag doesn't have any bright blue or yellow but is still very pretty with its orange, pink, reddish purple, black, off white, coral-ish red and green colors. The heart tag that's attached to the zipper is even prettier and more colorful than the one shown here. It has a good quality lining with 2 open pockets inside which would hold a compact mirror sized item in each.
Nice size great colors, well constructed & I like the fact that it is helping a good cause.
I had bought this for my daughter in law. Very nice quality and she loved it.
