Momostenango

We work with one family in the highlands town Momostenango, known for their wool production. The local family has formed an informal collective together with various weaving families in the town, each family specializing in a specific technique -- for example, one family weaves small geometric figure tapestry weave rugs, another weaves both wool warp and wool weft large rugs, and so on. The skills are specialized as are the looms and other tools necessary for each type of weave.

For custom production, we have enjoyed dip-dyeing wool rugs and blankets with natural dyes with our partner weavers at Lake Atitlán.
