I work with the indigenous weavers of Guatemala teaching them how to design and sew contemporary apparel with their traditional hand weaved jaspe’fabric. This product is part of my Creating Revenue through the Arts fair trade project. I started nine years ago with sewing simple purses to my current finely crafted apparel. My work with the Mayan weavers provides a specialized skill and a higher standard of living for the women, their families, and the Mayan communities as a whole!
