Carry a piece of history with this lovely clutch. The striped pattern is handwoven on traditional backstrap looms by skilled artisans in the highlands of Guatemala. These artisans are internationally recognized for their exceptional weaving abilities, and the color and patterns of the clutch tell a story that has been passed down through generations.

Artisan Profile

A nonprofit organization located in Panajachel, a small town on Lake Atitlan in the western highlands of Guatemala, is dedicated to connecting 120 indigenous artisans from the surrounding area to international markets. Through Fair Trade programs, they empower women artisans, their families, and their communities to strengthen their entrepreneurial ecosystems. The foundation leverages traditional Maya heritage and art to rescue, preserve, and promote the ancestral culture of the highland artisans with a focus on backstrap weaving. By earning a fair price for their work, the artisans can provide sustenance, medical care, and education to their children and contribute economically in their communities.

The textiles are entirely produced on traditional backstrap looms, which have been in use since the time of the Maya empire. This highly specialized weaving technique has been passed down from grandmother to mother and mother to daughter for hundreds of generations and produces intricate, durable textiles. This technique is time consuming but also very versatile and can be used to create fabrics light or heavy, smooth or textured, with endless color combinations and ikat designs.
