Deep black brightened with white specks and arrays of contrast. Stargazing 101, snuggled under a blanket with someone you love.
This fabric was woven in Totonicapán, which is located in the Western Highlands of Guatemala and has a population composed largely of K’iche’ Maya. Totonicapán is distinguished by its extensive oak-pine forests, in addition to its artisans which includes not only weavers, but also shoemakers, tinsmiths, potters, leather workers and carpenters.
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.
