Story Behind the Art: 'When I was eight years old my father thought it was time to learn to weave on a floor 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 backstrap 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.'
The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.

Beautiful artisan scarf. Colors are exactly as pictured, deeply saturated and gorgeous. Item came nicely wrapped, with a card from the artist. This is the 4th item I have purchased from Novica for gifting and I am delighted with quality. I also like the idea of supporting artists from different countries by purchasing unique items that reflect local heritage.
