This fair trade scarfwas handmade by the weaving group Tz’ikin Jaay. Founded in 1990 by a group of 10 war widows, this tenacious and talented weaving group makes beautiful hand-woven products using the traditional backstrap loom and small foot looms. In 2005, this group was again affected by tragedy when a mudslide wiped out their community. Throughout the years, weaving has a been a way for the women to support themselves and their families and to aid their community in recovery.
