From the Land of Eternal Spring

In the beautiful Highlands of Guatemala, at the edge of Lake Atitlan, is where the Mayan village of San Juan La Laguana lies, the home of our exclusive source of woven goods.

Artesania Maya, a Fair Trade Women's Weaving Cooperative, is lead by Clementina Vasquez (pictured below), one of the master artisans who manages the cooperative. Here over 30 indigenous backstrap weavers dedicate themselves, and their art, to preserving the ancient tradition of backstrap weaving. Clementina and the artists welcome anyone to come observe this sacred cultural process of creating beautiful things from the ground up. 

Our intention is the same as theirs - to make each garment a work of art, unique and distinct with beauty and meaning.  Applying their age-old traditions in new ways, we are building a vibrant economy with increased economic opportunities for themselves, their families, and community.

The technique, passed down from Mayan ancestors, allows the garment to come alive. You can’t help but gasp when you see it - it’s emotional when you see something beautiful and you touch it. The feel, the drape, the color. And there it is - a piece of Divinity, right in your hands.
