Our hand-woven fair trade tallit is handmade by Lila and other artisans from the Tzanjuyu group who live in the highlands of San Juan Comalapa. The matching crocheted kippah is hand-crocheted by artisans from San Marcos La Laguna who live along the shores of Lake Atitlán.  Textiles are an integral part of the Mayan culture.  Weaving is an ancient tradition passed down from mother to daughter.  Young girls often learn to weave even before they start school and continue to weave throughout their lives.  The artisans who craft our handmade fair trade tallitot and kippot are master weavers and crocheters who infuse years of experience into these beautiful sets.  The artisans craft these handmade items with particular care because they understand how special each tallis and kippah is to the people who purchase them.
