Dog Waste Bag Holder - Esperanza
This dreamy fabric has symbols of humans and butterflies woven into it. The artisan who made it, Manuel, explained that they are there to symbolize life & hope. We think that' pretty spectacular.
This fabric was hand-woven in Nahualá, which is in the Sololá Department of Guatemala. It is situated in the mountainside overlooking Lake Atitlán. Nearly the entire population is ethnic K'iche' Maya who speak the K'iche' language. Using a traditional wooden pedal loom, Manuel Ixmata’ and his team of friends and family start with 100% cotton, use dye to create their thread colors, and then weave it into this amazing fabric!
