Story Behind the Art: 'When I was eight years old my father thought it was time to learn to weave on a pedal loom, just like he did.' recalls Andres Perez. 'My products are associated with the history of Guatemala, for example our ancestors used to place the tortillas in a square holder woven by the women on a back strap loom. Now, that same tortilla holder is used as a placemat or napkin. I have taught the art of weaving to over 80 people and now I dedicate most of my time to designing new colors with natural dyes, innovate weaving techniques and supervise apprentices.'
