SAN ANTONIO PALOLÓ
Small family businesses have been a source of inspiration and creativity. Lucas and his family are exemplary role models for carrying out their work with skill and passion.
This small, tight-knit family group of artisans specializes in the elaboration of handmade products. Their artisan creativity allows the Santos’ family to make this their primary source of work.
They are responsible for making beautiful Mayan textiles, which are woven on foot looms with cotton fibers. These are young artisans engaged in preserving the Guatemalan traditions that have sustained their families for decades.
We work with a cooperative of distinguished indigenous women, led by Adiva, with the ability to craft colorful beaded canvases. The result is dazzling pieces and canvases full of colors and textures.
We have collaborated with Woset García, a great Guatemalan muralist and creative graffiti artist. He exposes our “Mayan Nahuatl” line with an incredible mix of urban art techniques, graphic design, and freehand illustration.
