New Brocades... Simultaneously hand woven & embroidered by Maya master weavers on an ancient loom, it’s a slow & meticulously skilled technique that creates art like textiles. Designed in London & woven by an all female weaving coop in the highlands of Guatemala.
Over the years working with this group really amazing changes have happened in their community as the women were able to stay in their community & culture working flexibly & being paid really well for their traditional weaving, now they earn more than their husbands, men no longer leave home for months to seek migratory labour, & the men are supporting the women in domestic chores & setting up looms. Female empowerment & preservation of traditional craft - it makes us really happy & it makes all the hard work of business worth it 🙌💥✊
