From the mountainous highlands of Santiago, to the picturesque Lake Atitan with its surrounding volcanoes; Guatemala is filled with female co-ops drawing on time-honored techniques and traditions. With a nod from the Mayan goddess of the moon and patron of weaving Ix Chel, textiles take on a mystical connection and pathway to female empowerment within Maya culture. Back strap and foot pedal looms create fabrics from organic cottons and natural dyes with a distinctive personality unique to each region of the country. A hallmark of these talented weavers is colorful nuance and subtle variations created from generational repetition rather than set patterns. Imagine Home is honored to bring you a slice of Guatemalan heritage.
