This past fall I visited Antigua, Guatemala for work. The majority of my days were spent at a world craft show meeting with new artisan groups and attending networking events. However, any few spare I had I was exploring the markets. Whenever I travel I end up getting lost in the local markets for hours just in awe of the amazing native handicrafts. In Antigua, it was the vibrant Huipils and yards of woven textiles. I was talking with an artisan we worked with and she said she could weave about 3-4 feet per day! Holy cow you have to have such patience with this craft…but clearly worth the time for these works of art! As we start to put together our Fall line, I get so excited to be able to share indigenous craft like these with others!
Check out a few of my favorites from the market!
