Ixil Textile with Corte Borders, Size 18×18
All Laura Luna Textiles are created from re-purposed Mayan fabrics. These traditional fabrics are hand-woven by treadle loom, or machine embroidered and indigenous to clothing worn in Guatemala.
Re-purposed parts of clothing include:
- “Huipiles” (blouse like garments)
- “Corte” (skirts/utilitarian fabric)
- “Faja” (belts)
Laura Luna’s unique designs are then created from their gently used clothing that is based on a 2000 year old textile tradition. A cottage industry, the artisans work in the comfort of their homes to create these beautiful textiles and then we make them available to you.
