All of our Guatemalan fabrics are 100% cotton and hand-woven by weaving cooperatives on a foot or treadle loom in different villages. Many of the fabrics incorporate the ikat pattern which is a traditional weaving technique used by the Maya for centuries. It is a very labor intensive process.
All fabrics are 36" wide. Bands/ikat run along the entire length of the bolt of fabric and parallel to the selvage. No returns on cut fabric but we are happy to send fabric swatches for your review. When ordering cloth through our secure online shopping cart, please note that it will not allow 1/2 yard orders - it only accepts whole numbers.
We welcome designers, art houses, and the fashion industry. As we carry large quantities of fabric, we can normally handle large orders. And since we work directly with the weavers, we can accommodate special requests.
