Weaving a Shawl such as the example depicted in this picture can take up to a week of weaving time using the Back Strap Loom.
Time does not include the preparation of the yarns to produce this Shawl. Each Ball of yarn takes 12 hours to hand spin and 12 hours’ time for naturally dye the yarns.
No machines used in this process. Back strap loom only.
Guatemalan Artisans produce purses, leather and cloth bags, shawls, scarves, huipiles, serapes, tablecloths, place mats, napkins, cushions, bedspreads, hammocks, based on sustainable and renewable initiatives.
The products are one of a kind works of Art.
Prior to Ethical Fashion Guatemala, Artisans earned less than 12% of the retail selling price of products sold in other countries.
We can help Artisans to sell direct, eliminating Middlemen, who are profiting due to the fact most Artisans do not have a website.
Artisans Designs are Stolen & Copied, sold on-line as Authentic works. Ethical Fashion Provides Copyright protection services for Artisans.
