"This fabric was woven in Totonicapán, which is located in the Western Highlands of Guatemala and has a population composed largely of K’iche’ Maya. Totonicapán is distinguished by its extensive oak-pine forests, in addition to its artisans which includes not only weavers but also shoemakers, tinsmiths, potters, leatherworkers, and carpenters. Using a traditional wooden pedal loom, Roberto Par’ and his team of neighbors and family start with 100% cotton, use dye to create their thread colors, and then weave it into this joyful fabric!
