Details

The Association of Friends of the Ixchel Museum people say, "This book is dedicated to the weaver artists who have worked diligently on their backstrap looms for generations, imbuing their textiles with the memory of their ancestors. They are living reminders of the goddess and protector Ixchel, the prototype of ancient Maya women." Each page features photos and historical information about traditional Guatemalan textiles. All purchases of this cultural book contribute to the Ixchel Museum.

The museum's name honors the pre-Hispanic goddess who was the patroness of weaving and fertility. The private, non-profit Ixchel Museum of Indigenous Textiles and Clothing was founded in 1977. Its mission is to collect, document, rescue, and exhibit the heritage of indigenous textiles in Guatemala, teaching it to people in order to conserve and spread it.
