Atitlan Sleeveless Vest

Erick

Our Atitlan Sleeveless Vest gives a touch of glamour to your everyday wardrobe! Pairs fantastically with a classic cigarette pant and neutral top for a stunning look fit for an easy day to night transition! 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.

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 minerals, and continue to use the original Mayan loom, also known as a backstrap loom, that consists of rods, rope, and a strap that is worn around the weaver’s waist! With skill and creativity, these Mayan weavers preserve their traditional craft techniques while creating an income for their families.

At Larkin Lane, Lark hand selects authentic textiles and collaborates with Guatemalan artisans in the design of each product. Your purchase supports these craftsmen and women. Thank you for the role you play in keeping global textile traditions alive!
