Our expandable headbands are created by the artisans of Agua Caliente who live in a rural village near the city of Chimaltenango within the central highlands area of the country. The Maya indigenous artisans of this group excel in the creation of items using treadle foot looms and make many of MayaWorks' home goods. In recent years MayaWorks has sponsored skills trainings with these artisans on using sewing machines. They are very open to learning new skills and are also very creative with their work. Some artisans have even created their own unique fabrics which are now used in MayaWorks products! The artisans of Agua Caliente make a fair wage in the production of this Guatemalan runner which allows them to better support their families.
