Story Behind the Art:
San Antonio is known for its colorful traditional costume. Traditionally, men were the only ones to operate a footloom but these scarves are made by both men and women. Maya Traditions is a fair-trade producer and wholesale business based in Lake Atitlan, Guatemala. For more than ten years Maya Traditions has worked with indigenous weavers in the highlands of Guatemala. Its mission is to support weaving groups and small family businesses through providing consistent income, as well as health and education projects

I love the colors and texture of this scarf. It is unique compared to the department store scarves. It hangs beautifully.
My daughter loved it so much, I gave it to her. She is a college student with young plucky taste in clothing, and she adored it!
I will have to order another one and hope no one comes along and bamboozles it from me!
This beautiful scarf is for all ages and all seasons. It was a good feeling to contribute to the fight against poverty- an extra bonus!
The reviews say that the colors rubbed off and also the colors ran. If it is machine washable, will the colors "set" after the scarf is washed?jeanneohansen on Apr 14, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for your question. They should set, but I would only wash this in cold water, gentle cycle, and air dry. overstockcustomercare1 on Apr 19, 2013
