Story Behind the Art:
Jane Mintz, a social worker and expert weaver, began working with local women and their families in Guatemala. She met anthropologist Martha Lynd who was researching textiles. Their shared passion for weaving and Maya culture led to the foundation, Maya Traditions. They create work opportunities for women and preserve ancient backstrap loom skills. With the sales of their weavings, donations and educational tours, Maya Traditions has developed social programs in education, health, and handcrafts.
