"This Table Runner Brightens My Days."

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

The mix of colors in this lovely woven cotton table runner inspired the weaver to call it Sunset Quetzal in honor of Guatemalas emblematic national bird, which is woven into the pattern. It is incredible lovely and makes me smile every day! The colors are pure and vibrant and the quality of this weaving is exceptional. So happy with my purchase.

Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

While Mayra faces her own health challenges, her baby boy caught dengue fever which is a mosquito-borne viral disease and is the leading cause of death occurring in tropical and subtropical areas. With all that she and her son face, she continues to push forward with incredible strength.

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 Leticia Hernandez has received 2 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $150 and the most recent for $400.

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

The Women's Empowerment badge is awarded to female artisans or artisan groups that are led by women.

Mayra has one son under the age of ten that she loves deeply and cares for.
