Women Artisans of Guatemala

A short interview with one of the women weavers, Oralia:

Working alongside fellow Mayan women as part of a local artisan association, Oralia learnt the art of looming from her grandmother.

Oralia works from her home, and always begins her weave with a prayer. As she takes care of her children during the day, Oralia often weaves throughout the night, aspiring to one day send her children to college.

Her incredible weaving produced some of the intricate SOLOLA shawls in this eclectic GUATEMALA collection.
