These colorful pouches are made by weavers from San Pedro La Laguna, Guatemala, using the same fabrics as used to make the Tortilla Napkins. Many are single mothers or widows and support their families through weaving.
"TEIXCHEL stands for Tejidos Ecológicos de Ixchel. Ixchel was the first weaver, our mother. We weave as a reminder of who we are as women and as a reminder of our futures and pasts. This is why we weave exclusively with nontoxic ecodyes and natural dyes, because our land is not only ours, but that of the generations to come."
