Fair Trade Colorful Crochet Kippa
This colorful fair trade kippah, intricately crocheted by the Mayan Hands women in San Pablo la Laguna, is is approximately 6 inches in diameter, but variations may occur due to the handmade nature of the yarmulke. Indigenous artisans love color and craft their designs using colors reflected in their “traje”, the traditional Mayan dress used by indigenous men and women in Guatemala. Your purchase of this Fair Trade Kippa ensures a path to prosperity for the artisans, their families and their communities — a future. Each kippa is signed by the weaver.
As each kippa is hand crocheted, no two are exactly alike, although the theme and colors remain consistent. Left in stock right now is the first one on the left in the middle row — the bright green star, also featured in the gallery; our favorite!
Materials: 100% cotton
