About the Cooperative:
"We are a cooperative of Tz'utujil women weavers in San Juan La Laguna on the shores of Lake Atitlan, Guatemala. We began in 1988 to enable Tz'utujil-only speaking weavers to live from their art and to maintain fair prices between us.
Using 100% organic natural dyes and threads, we work in harmony with mother nature to protect the environment and maintain our traditional weaving and jaspe techniques, passed down from our Mayan ancestors"
