This lovely organic cotton, silky-to-the-touch blouse was woven exclusively for Tesoros Maya by Anita and Maria, both sisters that belong to a family of masters weavers in the lakeside village of San Juan La Laguna, Guatemala.

San Juan La Laguna on Lake Atitlan is the most innovative weaving communities in the highlands of Guatemala. Primarily threads are spun with organic cotton and dyed with natural pants; herbs and dyes.

Process: The "Ikat" design is process that begins by tying knots onto warped threads, which are then plunged into natural dye baths. When the threads have been dyed and dried, the knots are removed revealing the designs, then the threads can be woven into this textile.

Female artisans use locally sourced plants and herbs to create dye baths that they apply to cotton threads. They use a banana tree trunk solution to fix the color and help stabilize the dye, ensuring the color will never run. The entire piece is genuine hand woven masterpiece.
