Story Behind the Art:
The Pro-Teje Committee came about in 1994. The name in Spanish plays on the homonym 'protege,' meaning 'it protects.' It focuses on rescuing textiles created on the back strap loom, with which the weaver maintains the tension of the warp with a belt worn around her waist, leaning backward and forward to tighten or loosen the tension. Maya women weavers who have handed down their textile art from generation to generation for thousands of years.
