I design and make clothing with the Mayan weavers of Guatemala. It is an effort to collaborate talent and give support to the indigenous communities of Guatemala.
My 2018 design is a waist length zipper jacket hand sewed in sections with nylon and hand weaved cotton tapestry panels. I cut the panels from Mayan blouses woven on backstrap looms. The smooth nylon shine combined with the textural tapestry panels is stunning! The panels are sewn on a diagonal with a metal zipper. Eight color combinations are available, one size (medium) with two side pockets.
