Featuring a hand-woven Guatemalan textile, our "Tikal" bag is perfect for jewelry, make-up, or as a small clutch!
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.
Guatemala is one of few countries in the world where the ancient traditions of textile art still thrive!
Thank you for supporting women in business! Following the Civil War in Guatemala (from 1960-1996), many women were widowed and left without an income. Weaving at home has allowed them to support their children through their craft and at the same time develop self-confidence and organizational skills. They have passed these skills on to their daughters and granddaughters and created a successful and self-sustaining enterprise- all while preserving their cultural heritage!
