Story Behind the Art:
Karina Mercedes Canova says, 'I lived for nine years in the picturesque village of Amatitlan. At college, I'd spend vacations creating clothing collections based on our beautiful handwoven 'jaspe' fabric. Today my leather handbags feature inserts of the beautiful brocades woven by Maya women on backstrap looms for 'huipil' blouses. Their weaving motifs date back more than 1,200 years.'
