Guatemalan Textile Zip Clutch- Taupe/ Golden Yellow

Erick

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.
