This striking hand woven dish towels in rich shades of blues, greens & turquoise are generously sized, long lasting and absorbent (after a few washings). Twill loop for hanging. Easy care wash and dry. Mayamam Weavers create handwoven home goods and accessories for modern living, inspired by the rich colors and patterns and traditional weaving techniques of Mayan culture. As well as beautiful, products are soft and crafted from 100% cotton, durable enough for everyday use. Mayamam Weavers began in 2008 as a cooperative of women in Cajolá, a Mayan town in the western highlands of Guatemala. To overcome poverty, the women came together to explore ways to provide jobs within their community, rather than migrate to the U.S. and separate their families. Since then, then cooperative has grown to 20 weavers and seamstresses, all earning fair trade wages while learning the skills to run a business. Fair-trade. Measures 26 x 18 in.
