Based on ancient Mayan spinning and dyeing techniques, Guatemalan textiles are an enduring link to a rich cultural past. Weavers today (mostly women) still derive colors for their threads from vegetable and mineral substances. The Mayan loom - a back strap loom- is still the method of weaving used today. With skill and creativity, these Mayan weavers preserve their traditional craft techniques while creating an income for their families.
Made from the most exquisitely detailed Guatemalan fabric, the shades of celadon and mint green are interwoven with a gold thread in a process that is largely dying out among younger weavers. We are doing our best to convince the younger generation to learn this intricate technique and preserve this textile tradition!
