Story Behind the Art: Ixoq Ajkeem means 'Woman Weaver' in the Maya Tz'utujil language. 'We are a group of 20 Tz'utujil women. We specialize in textiles by preserving traditional techniques, using natural dyes, and weaving on backstrap looms. We also recycle threads as an effort to preserve the environment. Being women of Maya origin, the preservation of our environment is of fundamental importance to us. It is something we are born with,' says Noemi Mendoza, president of the Association.
