Description + Story

El Sol Maya works with a group of fifty women in Guatemala. The women work to uphold their customs as Maya Ixil women, of weaving textiles with backstrap looms to generate income for their families. Women receive the thread, which is woven by them in their homes, as per their ancient custom. Their weaving tradition has been handed down from generation to generation, and now they are teaching it to their daughters so this tradition won't be lost.

As their group has grown they have been able to open a workshop where women from the region have the opportunity to learn or to improve their textile techniques, and also learn to be businesswomen to improve their quality of life.
