Story Behind the Art:
The Association of Chaquiya Artisan Women was founded in 1989 to contribute to their family's income and bring food to their tables. Many were widowed during Guatemala's civil war. Originally a group of 20, they had all learned to weave at a young age. 'Through our work we've learned to pull though and be able to feed, dress and educate our children,' their president Cristina Par says.
The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.
