The Mayan Story
Design | Fabricate | Layout
Guatemala's magnificent Mayan textiles are made with different techniques, materials and designs varying from the region they originate. The beauty of the Guatemalan textiles rests in their colors and intricate designs (geometric, plant and zoomorphic) which are mixed in a single textile and refer to common elements found in their surrounding Guatemalan areas.
The mens scarves are woven on a back strap loom with natural dyes. To fix the colors into the 100% cotton made scarves the Mayan artists use a banana plant stem. Edwards' Finds is honored to support the Guatemalan female artists providing a market place for their hand made textiles and helping the artists support their families.
