Doing good is as simple as black and white with our fair trade tote, handwoven by artisans in Guatemala!
Since 2000, La Casa Cotzal has designed a range of Guatemalan handicrafts produced by artisan communities throughout the country. Mayan women traditionally have been back-strap loom weavers, but increasingly they are learning to use pedal looms as well. In traditional Guatemalan weaving, the two main specialized techniques are ikat and supplementary weft brocade. Artisans at La Casa are versed in both weaving techniques as well as in intricate bead work. The work provided by La Casa is vital to the women's families and communities.
