By purchasing a Tesoros Maya scarf, you will be directly supporting the artistry and the work of two amazing ladies: Anita and Maria, two sisters and master weavers from San Juan La Laguna, Guatemala. Your purchases will allow them the opportunity to preserve their cultural knowledge of natural dyes & ancient weaving techniques, and will provide them with additional income to support their children & community!
Guatemalan artisans use locally sourced plants and herbs to create dye baths that they apply to cotton or rayon threads. They use a banana tree trunk solution to fix the color and help stabilize the dye, ensuring the color will never run.
Time to create: 4-6 days
