Cotton Pedal Loom Weavers

Artisans In Group


Styles Made


In Cajolá, the Western highlands of Guatemala, we work with a cooperative of women pedal loom weavers. Traditionally, men are pedal loom weavers in this region, but the women saw pedal loom weaving as a more commercially viable way to support themselves and decided to break tradition.

Since 2008 they've been working as a cooperative that also includes childcare and professional training.
