These beautiful scarfs are handwoven on a traditional back strap loom by a Mayan Women’s cooperative in the highlands of Guatemala. They are hand dyed using traditional ikat technique, featuring a sophisticated, rich color palette and exceptionally soft hand.  Made by a collective of widowed indigenous women to improve the lives of their families and community through financial security. In addition to providing women financial independence, the project supports traditional Mayan handcraft, challenged by the demands of fast paced modern living. Each scarf measures 77” in length and 21” in width.
