Magical Mayan Weavers of Guatemala Curated by: KK
"Our group came about because we wanted to create a marketing project for Guatemalan artisan designs. For us and for many other women, handicrafts are an important source of work and income. Our techniques are traditional and combine our cultural wealth with contemporary design elements...Guatemala is a country with a rich artisan tradition, both in the cities and the rural areas. Many, many women are artisans, especially our Maya women. We organize them into small groups like cooperatives, associations, family workshops, and we also work with individual craftspeople. They live in different region of the country ? Quich?, Solol?, Baja Verapaz, Alta Verapaz, Totonicap?n, Sacatep?quez and Chimaltenango."
