    Maya Traditions is a fair-trade producer and wholesale business based in Lake Atitlan Guatemala. For more than ten years Maya Traditions has worked with indigenous weavers in the highlands of Guatemala. Its mission is to support weaving groups and small family businesses through providing consistent income as well as health and education projects. The fabric is hand-woven on the backstrap loom by the San Juan Weavers Group, which is made up of Tzutujil women who weave using an ancient labor-intensive technique of hand-tying and dying threads in elaborate patterns.

  • Great!

    I have purchased this scarf in all colors except the orange, (not my color). The monitor does not show the depth or richness of the colors. All the scarves were so much more beautiful in person. Each scarf is exceptional. Note the measurements, as they do run to the narrow side. I find it difficult to find 100% cotton, quality loomed scarves at any price. These are a steal. Thanks Overstock for another super purchase. The black one is more accurately depicted in the first picture. It is black, with green, with grays and whites as well. It is not dark gray and blue as pictured in the second and third.
