"There are so many flowers that grow in the town where I live and they inspire all the artisans here. They appear on almost all my designs… even my moods are expressed through color.

"I began working with you at the end of 2017. A new avenue for sales seemed phenomenal to me. I didn't think twice, but immediately said ‘yes.'

I come from a family of textile artisans. Each sale, each opportunity to share our work is vital. My family is my motivation to get ahead every day, observing the colors around me and continuing to create handbags worthy of every woman.

"Since we began working with you, we've been able to provide employment for seven women in our Mexican Maya community. One of the reasons my family's tradition is returning is precisely because of the preservation of textiles woven on the backstrap loom. It is an art that has been disappearing, and I believe that my mission is to preserve it as much as possible.

"We want to continue growing and sharing this beautiful weaving tradition of the backstrap loom with all of you who love Mexican handicrafts. I started alone and now have seven people helping me. We want to strive for more.

Original Artisan Story

"I'm Luz Gonzales from a small Maya town in Mexico. I've loved the handicrafts of our village for as long as I can remember — their shapes and colors. But it wasn't until I was a teen that I decided to practice and learn.

"All my life, I've seen threads and yarns, and an incredible diversity of colors everywhere. The flowers in the gardens of people's homes and on the hillsides are the main inspiration for our textile arts here. I learned to weave and embroider thanks to my mother and my aunts.

"My grandmothers and the whole family have always worked in textiles and embroidery, and they're my inspiration. This is craft that makes me remember my roots and fills me with pride to be able to weave and embroider.

"I use cotton and weave the fabric on a backstrap loom. Once woven, I embroider it.

"I love combining colors because you can play with them and end up with extraordinary designs.

"My greatest challenge is satisfying shoppers and helping them appreciate the effort that goes into our work.

"There are so many flowers that grow in the town where I live and they inspire all the artisans here. They appear on almost all my designs. I also like the shapes of the mountains, and even my moods are expressed through color.

"My most important goal is one I work toward every day — I want to preserve our culture and our traditions. I want to share a glimpse of our religious beliefs and our folklore in this Maya community where I live and work.

"I want with all my heart to continue finding opportunities and generate work for women who are in school. I want to support them in their dreams like they've supported mine.

FINDING YOUR SIZE

Take your measurements with the tape measure over your under garments. If your measurements fall between sizes you may prefer the next larger size. Inseam, skirt and dress lengths vary by style and will be listed in the item description. Our sweaters are knit in standard American sizes, however actual measurements vary by style.

BUST / CHEST

Measure around the fullest part of chest under the arms and over the shoulder blades keeping the tape measure level.

WAIST

Measure around the smallest part of the waist keeping the tape measure comfortably loose. Most garments use the low waist measurement noted below.

LOW WAIST

Measure around the body approximately 1.5" below the natural waist (above). This is the area where most pants and skirts actually fit.

HIPS

Standing with your heels together, measure around the fullest part of the body approx 7"-8" below the waist.

NECK

Measure around the base of the neck keeping the tape measure comfortably loose.

SLEEVE

Bend elbow slightly and starting at the center back of the neck, measure across the shoulder, to the elbow and down to the wrist.

INSEAM

Our standard inseam length for women is 32" and 34" for men; however inseam measurements will vary slightly by style.

 

Belts with buckles are measured in inches that correspond to a waist size however, most people do not wear belts on the waist, they wear them closer to the hips. A buckle belt measurement is take from the end of the "pin" of the buckle to the middle hole on the belt. Generally there are 5 holes for size adjustment, with a 1" space between each, so the middle hole will the be average size of the belt.

For at tie belt (no buckle) measure the belt portion end to end and half of the tie portion. This again is the medium size of the belt.

For a soft fabric tie belt it can be called "1 size fits most" and the entire length of the belt should be measured and listed.

By skipping steps in the traditional supply chain, you can buy high quality items for less than the regular retail prices.
