Leonore Guatemalan Blouse - White

Erick

Effortless and cool, the "Leonore" will have you ready for summer and craving  warmer temps! This style combines the best elements of all our Guatemalan blouses with a more fitted, flattering shape and extended length to make it more versatile!

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 vegetables 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!
