Quetzal Guatemalan Textile Clutch
Beautiful, subtle colors in an intricately woven textile, the Quetzal clutch is named for the bird featured on it - the national bird of Guatemala (and the name of their currency) the quetzal. The light blush oink is perfectly complemented by an earthy café au lait color, ivory and a deep indigo.
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.
At Larkin Lane, Lark hand selects authentic textiles and collaborates with Guatemalan artisans in the design of each product. Your purchase supports these craftsmen and women. Thank you for the role you play in keeping global textile traditions alive!
