By purchasing a Tesoros Maya shawl or scraf, 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!
Anita and Maria use all natural dyes in the creation of their beautiful products, they 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.
The process is absolutely stunning and the end result is even more magnificent!
