"Hello, I'm Claudia, mother of the Merida family artisans. We are an enterprising, hard-working, close and honorable family. In 2012, we pooled our money and began creating fashion with Guatemala's legendary handwoven Maya fabrics. It's been an adventure for us and our minds and hearts have become dream machines.

"We really want our workshop to prosper so we can realize our biggest dream, which is to create a foundation to help underprivileged children. We love what we do.

"Our textiles are handwoven traditional looms by traditional artisan women in highland villages. We obtain our materials from Guatemalan artisans so we can create a synergy of mutual support. All the apparel and accessories we create combine our ancestral techniques with modern materials and designs.

"We enjoy working as a family. We are very proud to show our work and that of everyone involved in our artisanal venture because we know Guatemala has the capacity to create world-class quality."

"Traditional Guatemalan fabric"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

When I was in the Lake Atitlan area of Guatemala, I visited a shop that had many items made of this style weave. The gals in the shop explained how the material is dyed with vegetable and natural products, and then woven on a loom. I was so happy that Novica carries the pants, since the shop didnt have any. These are SO stylish, comfortable, and cute. I love them!

"Lots of fun!"

I adore wrap skirts, and they can be difficult to find. This one is so much fun with its colorful patches. The fabric is lightweight and soft. I hope this artist offers more wrap skirts in different designs. Thanks for a well made product.

"Beautiful but too small"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Package arrived fast, well-packaged and pants are beautiful fabric and nicely made. Unfortunately, the sizing is way off. A L/XL is really the American equivalent of M/L. I wear between a 14 and 16 in most pants. These are decidedly on the 14 end. I can wear them but they are not harem pants loose, they are tight in crotch and hips. Very disappointing as I love them otherwise. Too much trouble to send back. But man, 75 bucks for too tight pants. Sigh. Will probably try to cut them open and add fabric to make a (probably weird looking) panel skirt. These pants are great if you are a small person. Just be advised that they run very small. I was afraid they would and should have gone with my instincts when I saw there were only 3 sizes.
