Story Behind the Art:
'I grew up surrounded by threads, fabrics, scissors and sewing machines,' recalls Maximiliano Pocon from Guatemala. 'I'm the third of eight brothers and since there were so many of us, we had to help with production and sales. This is how I learned to work, alongside my parents, observing their every move. It wasn't easy to establish myself as an artisan, sometimes I had to take risks. But the good thing is that I get to do something I'm passionate about. Today I teach the people who collaborate with me, and also my daughter, who wants to do our silk screen prints when she's older. She helps me in the workshop, and is my pride and joy.'
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.
