Meaning 'For the Wellbeing of All' in Maya, Komon Utzil was found in 1989 by a Guatemalan anthropologist. She was touched by the generosity the local women showed her, but distressed by their lack of opportunities to earn an income. Making a living through weaving would allow the women to stay in their communities and homes, thus maintaining their traditional lifestyle, only better. Komon Utzil has worked in more than a dozen communities.What is Worldstock?The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design.
