What's cute, striped and red all over? Our "Franja" Guatemalan clutch! Perfect pop of color to bring some personality to your outfit!

Based on ancient Mayan spinning and dyeing techniques, Guatemalan textiles are an enduring link to a rich cultural past.

 Guatemalan weavers today (mostly women) derive colors for their threads from fruits, vegetables, spices,  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. 

  • 10.5" x 6"

At Larkin Lane, Lark hand selects each textile from the Guatemalan artisans themselves and collaborates with them to create each design.  It is an honor to support this centuries-old craft and bring it to the modern woman's wardrobe!
