Woven by hand, a geometric figure symbolizes the sun. Miguel Hernandez creates a table runner of extraordinary beauty. He combines pine, crimson, brown, beige and white on a black warp to achieve rich nuances of color. Bands of diamond motifs in black and green are a symbol of his family and appear on almost all his designs. He names the table linen for Totonicapán, a Guatemalan town famous for its textile arts.
Miguel first learned to read and write when he was 18, which is 11 years after he learned to weave. Using a handloom has always been a big part of his family's life and he now has more than 20 years of experience creating beautiful hand-loomed products. He was taught by his parents and preserves the tradition by teaching those in his community.
Two of his children are in high school and the eldest is attending the university.
