  • A great place to shop AND to learn! I came here to learn botanical dyeing and traditional backstrap weaving and I am SO GLAD that I did. I just walked into the shop and Delphine, the shopkeeper...

  • So amazing! We learned so much about how they dye and weave and got the opportunity to talk to a weaver for free! Their products are beautiful.

  • The demonstration was very informative and they were able to give it in English! I love that the tags have a picture of the woman that made each item, with their name and how long it took to make!
  • As progress and modernization get a grip on the rural areas of Guatemala, traditions sometimes get left behind. This Cooperative purposes to preserve the art of Mayan weaving. Not just generally, but in specific patterns for specific places. They use all natural processes too. The dyes come from a wide variety of plants. The whole thing is fascinating. The items for sale ARE the real thing, not mass-produced knock offs.
