Story Behind the Art:
Maya Traditions is a fair-trade producer and wholesale business based in Lake Atitlan, Guatemala. Its mission is to support weaving groups and small family businesses through providing consistent income, health and education projects.
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.
Considering what I knew about the origin and hand-made quality, maybe I should have had different expectations. The colors are wonderful, and as expected. However, the scarf had an acrid, chemical odor when I took it out of the plastic bag. So I washed it in cold water & Woolite on a gentle cycle and let it air-dry before I tried it on. The fabric is stiff (actually, no more than before I washed it) and not very comfortable next to my skin. Maybe it will become softer with time. Given the above, I probably won't wear the scarf as often as I would like. Although the dimensions were given, I found it to be an odd size, compared to the other scarves I own.
This scarf is so much more than I thought it would be, it is the most beautiful scarf I have ever seen. I am not exaggerating. I would buy this to give to anyone, man or woman. Anyone who receives this item would be thrilled. Love it! Love it! Love it!!
