This refreshing and cheery fabric will have you reminiscing about your childhood days when all it took was an icy pink glass of a cold drink to turn around an afternoon.
This fabric was woven in San Marcos La Laguna, which is a village on the western shore of Lake Atitlán. It is a small village of 2200 inhabitants with Kaqchikel-speaking indigenous Mayans as the majority of the population. The local Mayan weavers are famous for their brightly colored fabrics.
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.
