LOTS OF LOVE & WOMEN POWER

Color & pattern: unique!
Each woven piece is individually made with a lot of love by the Mayans in Guatemala, no two are alike. The women weave for the family at home and can therefore manage work and household tasks together. Weaving is the only source of income for many single women and is physically demanding and time-consuming.

Weave: Jaspe, spacing. Duration 1-2 weeks.

How I get the materials:
—————————————————————
Direct & fair:
I look for these used & pre-loved fabrics all over Guatemala and pay the women fair prices so that they can make a living with their work. I wish that we as women all over the world stick together and share our wealth so that these families also have a chance for education and more opportunities.

CARE:
—————————————————————
Very delicate fabric!
These hand-woven fabrics are very loosely woven, feel great but are also sensitive! This material is not for rough hands, it's easy to get caught in the loops.
So it is also an advantage to wash them by hand!
I do not accept any guarantee for machine laundry!
But what I can give you as a tip is if you have a washing machine with a hand wash program and wash the vest upside down in a laundry bag and spin it at no more than 400 rpm you will also get a good result. However, matting can still occur!

The fabrics are pre-washed.

All fabrics are unique and I make each item of clothing myself.
MADE IN GERMANY

*As this piece is a handmade vintage piece, slight irregularities and 'blemishes' may occur in the weaving. There may also be areas that were subsequently improved. I see this as part of the beauty of this vintage fabric. You can really see the craftsmanship origins and the history it carries. It is wonderful.
