High up in the mountainous region of Momostenango, Guatemala are three co-ops who weave our wool pillows, flat weave rugs, and shaggy rugs. They use handspun wool dyed with sustainable, non-toxic dyes. The wool here is thicker, resulting in a very textural product.

Between the three co-ops, there are approximately 20 weavers. These groups are some of the most experimental artisans we've worked with and are always open to trying out new ideas or textures.
