Story Behind the Art:
'We began working together in 2004 with women from different communities in Ixil, one of the poorest regions in Guatemala because of the civil war. We make our own backstrap looms, but we have an expert build our handlooms because they are more complicated and they have metal combs and heddles. It hasn't been easy to establish ourselves as an artisan group, because some of us live far from here and the roads are difficult. Also, many of the women don't know how to read or write, and only a few speak Spanish well.'
