UNIQUENESS – HANDMADE

Each of Mayalla’s products is beautifully unique. We are proud that no piece will be exactly the same as another since they are all handmade. A product that is not factory-fabricated, that has the human touch and is special, a real masterpiece! Please be aware that some of our products may have natural markings and imperfections, which should not be considered a fault. These imperfections make the piece special and human art, they are appreciated.

 

ETHICAL IMPACT 

We support the Guatemalan community by purchasing their beautiful handmade textiles for fair prices from the weavers on the local markets. It is very important to us that they are paid fairly for their hard work. That’s why the artisans themselves set their prices. We are giving you - the consumer - the opportunity to show social responsibility by shopping in Ethical Stores like Mayalla. Read more here.

 

SUSTAINABILITY

We have sustainably sourced all our textiles from our local weavers in Guatemala on the markets in Chichicastenango, Antigua and Panajachel.

 

EMBRACING CULTURES

We want to show the world the rich Guatemalan culture by sharing its indigenous handcrafted fabrics and traditions with the world. And explaining the meanings of their traditional textiles and other ancient traditions. Many people have never heard of Guatemala, so we see it as our challenge to change that!

      TEXTILE

      “Almolonga Huipil" the Guatemalan Blouse – Handwoven Textile

       

      The textile of this bag is a “huipil” (Guatemalan blouse) and comes from the village Almolonga, a small town in a long and narrow valley in the department of Quetzaltenango in Guatemala. Its inhabitants dress daily with their colorful handwoven huipils. A new huipil can cost them easily a 2 months’ salary. It’s huipils are woven on a backstrap loom and take 1-4 months to complete. Thanks to its very fine weave of 100% cotton, the garments last for generations and the quality never fades.

      Almolonga’s hot springs and rich volcanic soil make it a very fertile place for agriculture, it is also known as the “orchard of the country”. It is famous for its picturesque markets and it is the most important trade center for fresh products in all Central America. Almolonga is a Quiche speaking town and its ancient name, Molon'ya, translates as "a place where the water springs up". Its huipils are brocaded with geometrical and zigzag patterns in different colors such as pink, green, blue, purple, orange-gold, black and white. These zigzag designs signify mountains, which provide clean air and protection from sickness. The huipils from Almolonga usually feature a very intricate brocade of diamonds, a symbol that represents the universe. The diamond was one of the most important symbols for the ancient Mayas. Geometric bands represent lightning and arrows in rich colors. Sometimes brocade includes also flower and bird motifs.
