This is an elaborate process done by one weaver using a foot pedal treadle loom or back loom without the use of electricity. To make 120 yards of the textile it involves the following process:

~ One week to dye the thread colors

~ Two weeks to prepare the pattern designs

~ One week for the preparation of all the threads

~ One week to combine the threads according to the width of the textile in the loom

~ Two weeks to make the textile
When Guatemalan artisans weave their richly colored textiles, they bring to life designs their Mayan ancestors adapted from Spanish Conquistadors in the 16th century.
Infused with regional color schemes and motifs, they are like no other textiles in the world and are still worn daily by the people of Guatemala. We have long collected Guatemalan textiles and their beauty and originality inspired us to launch a line of unique products while providing a new market for Guatemalan textile artists.
