When Guatemalan artisans weave their richly colored textiles, they bring to life designs their Mayan ancestors adapted from Spanish Conquistadors in the 16th century. Infused with regional color schemes and motifs, they are like no other textiles in the world and are still worn daily by the people of Guatemala.
As a young child, I was introduced to the textile world through my mother who grew up in Bolivia. These colorful weavings were displayed throughout our home. It wasn't until I was older that I truly began to appreciate the intricacy and beauty of these weavers' designs and the stories they told. Their beauty and originality inspired me to launch a line of unique handmade products while providing a new market for Guatemalan textile artisans.
