Details

These cute kid’s aprons are hand woven and constructed by the talented artisans of the community of Xetonox located in Tecpán, Guatemala. This group is extremely skilled at weaving difficult fabrics on treadle foot looms. Now after a MayaWorks training, they are able to weave fabrics up to 36" wide. They are also talented at sewing and can easily work on the construction of different products. The group consists of 8 women who speak their native language of Kacqchikel. These artisans are very grateful for the fair wages they receive from the sale of their products through MayaWorks. To add to their income many of these artisans have taken out small MayaWorks microcredit loans so they can buy animals or grow crops.
