Story Behind the Art:

The San Juan Weavers Group in Guatemala spends up to two days weaving one scarf on a backstrap loom. The San Juan Weavers Group is made up of Tzutujil women who weave using backstrap Ikat an ancient labor intensive technique of hand-tying and dying threads in elaborate patterns. 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.

  • Pretty But Not Delicate

    I ordered several of these scarves because I fell in love with the colors on the web site. When I received them, they were beautiful but simply too thick for my taste. The thickness certainly speaks to their quality, but I wanted something thin and flowing. These are lightweight, but not "flowing enough" when I put them around my neck and let them hang. The colors and patters very pretty, but I'll be sending them all back because it's not that soft, flowing "look" or feel that I was hoping for.

    The scarf is good quality, pretty. The colors were better on the website than on the scarf itself, however.

    I have purchased this scarf in all colors except the orange, (not my color). The monitor does not show the depth or richness of the colors. All the scarves were so much more beautiful in person. Each scarf is exceptional. Note the measurements, as they do run to the narrow side. I find it difficult to find 100% cotton, quality loomed scarves at any price. These are a steal. Thanks Overstock for another super purchase.
