  • A Guatemalan Adventure

    Posted on 05/03/2014 by A Rum Fellow

    Each year we will introduce a collection inspired by travels to a new country or region. We have just returned from adventures in Guatemala where we have discovered many beautiful things and met lots of wonderful people. Guatemalans are the best! We have lots of lovely things to share with you, but lets start at the beginning.

    We stopped in to watch weavers in Santa Caterina on the shore of Lake Atitlan. Here we saw how they embroiderer patterns into the textile as they weave it. From humble tools the weavers here produce the most incredible textiles.

    The tools of the trade are set up and ready to go. The well worn leather backstrap attaches around the back of the weaver and keeps the warp threads tensioned.

    Because hand weaving isn't complicated enough, Mayan weavers embroider as they go. Colourful threads are embroidered whilst they weave the weft thread, overlaying patterns onto the textile.

    Stay tuned for more tales and textiles from this beautiful land.
