Luisa Guatemalan Caftan - Blue, Taupe
Based on ancient Mayan spinning and dyeing techniques, Guatemalan textiles are an enduring link to a rich cultural past. Weavers today (mostly women) still derive colors for their threads from vegetables and minerals and continue to use the original Mayan loom, also known as a backstrap loom, that consists of rods, rope, and a strap that is worn around the weaver’s waist! With skill and creativity, these Mayan weavers preserve their traditional craft techniques while creating an income for their families.
