With browns, creams and deep tones, this fabric evokes the peace and calm of a languid day, reading on a towel at the beach.
This fabric was woven in San Pedro La Laguna which is a lakeside village on the southwest shore of Lake Atitlán and at the base of a volcano (also called San Pedro). For centuries, San Pedro La Laguna has been inhabited by the Tz'utujil people. The population remains over 90% indigenous.
These novel little bags start their journey as new fabric that is hand-woven by members of a women’s cooperative in the highlands of Guatemala. They are then hand sewn by a small family-run sewing shop outside Chichicastenango, Guatemala. By setting their own wages and prices, weavers and sewers have the opportunity to express their creativity while carrying on the tradition of weaving and earning a fair wage.
Just as each pup has its own personality, each weaver’s design is unique. No two fabrics are the same.
