I have this covering a lateral bookcase in my office. It is so pretty and I miss being able to go see it since Ive been working from home for the past year. The picture just does not do the colors justice.

Mayra is going through a very difficult time in her life since the money her husband earns is not enough to live on and, although her sales in NOVICA are a constant help, they are not enough to cover her expenses.

Mayra is a proud weaver who uses a backstrap loom, a traditional technique that has been practiced for generations in Central America.
