Fair Trade Tree of Life Kippa Limited Edition
Completely designed by women artisans of Santiago, Atitlán who are known for their exquisite embroidery work, MayaWorks’ limited edition fair trade Tree of Life kippah (yarmulke) is a work of art. Simple yet elegant, the kippah is crocheted using natural colored thread. Next, tree branches, leaves and trunk are embroidered in the center of the kippah. Each fair trade Tree of Life kippah is approximately 6 inches in diameter, but variation may occur due to the handmade nature of the yarmulke. Your purchase of this Fair Trade Kippa provides income to the artisans who crochet the kippot, which means better food on their family table, better access to health care, and school for Maya children.
