The cascading travel bag is a very difficult product to assemble as it is very complex. The artisans of Chixot have taken on this project because of their excellent sewing skills. The artisan group contains 11 women and men who live near the Comalapa area of Guatemala in the central highlands region. They hand weave the fabric for the Cascading Cosmetic Bag and also do the sewing on the product which is very complicated because of the plastic inside. The artisans work under fair trade principles and receive a fair wage for their work that allows them to support their families and their community.
