Sammy the Sloth, Guatemala

People are just crazy about sloths.  This adorable creature is handmade in a fair trade women's cooperative in Guatemala of felted wool on a wire frame. It includes a tag with a hand-written name of the Guatemalan woman who made it.  

Makes a great stocking stuffer.

Approximately 5" tall.

Choking hazard:  not for children under age 3.


The women who make our felted animals live in the highlands of Guatemala.  Felting is a new Guatemalan craft and the products have been so popular that the cooperative employs more and more women every year.  They receive fair wages and are learning computer and other business skills.  In the above photo the artisan is enjoying reading facebook messages that her fans have posted.
