  • Maguey

    Maguey is a cactus that is natural to Guatemala. The longest leaves of the plant are chosen and then they are roasted. The leaves are then soaked in water for eight days until the outer husk rots off. The leaves are combed or scraped until the fiber is made accessible. After this the fiber is dyed with natural dyes from plants, leaves, roots, seeds, husks and barks from the trees. Every piece is unique and a one of a kind. The 27 women who design and weave this product live in the state of Chiquimula and the profits they make from their weaving help to sustain their families.
