Meet the Artist

Carmina Giron

"I work with my daughters; they help me to verify that the pieces are in the best condition, to find and inspire me in new designs and to pack the products."

“My name is Lilian Carmina Girón Cruz. I was born in 1968 in Guatemala City. I consider myself a hard-working, skillful... and dedicated person. I grew up in an area of the city of Mixco, in a family made up of my father, mother and four siblings. Despite a limited economic condition, I lived a very happy childhood and we never lacked a plate of food on the table. My father worked as an industrial mechanic and my mother worked at home;, she was the one who taught us to read and write. Since I was little I saw how my mother made us uniforms by hand, and I also saw how my father fixed all the things in my house. It was there where my taste for crafts was born. In addition to that, at school they taught us to weave and make things by hand. At school we learned to make crafts with the macramé technique, and I really enjoyed it. What most caught my attention was how a simple knot can form unique designs and fabrics.

“My family we faced a difficult economic situation, but with God, people that God put in our path, and our work and effort, we managed to get ahead. Regarding my personal life; I dream of having my own house. With my business I would like to grow and have a physical space in which I can generate work for many people.

“Since I was little I have had the ability to make crafts, and currently I watch tutorials on the internet to learn new techniques and designs that with practice I have been improving. In 2017, looking for an extra source of economic income, I started with my small project of accessories and macrame decoration with an online store through social networks. My first clients were members of my family, and that was how, little by little, more people got to know my small business.

“The part I like the most is the design; creating and combining different colors and textures to obtain a satisfactory result. The hardest thing for me is threading the crystals, which requires a lot of patience and time. I use materials such as waxed thread, beads, natural stones and crystals, among others. I get all of these supplies from a local craft dealer. Many times I reuse the thread to create new pieces. For tools I use a wooden board which I have marked with the measurements of the bracelets, and a clip or hook that holds the threads and scissors. I work with my daughters; they help me to verify that the pieces are in the best condition, to find and inspire me in new designs and to pack the products. I am in charge of designing, buying the materials and making the pieces.

“What inspires me the most is to make known the beauty of this art, and that people appreciate our culture and of course make our country known through crafts. I thank you for the opportunity, and for being a company that helps to promote art and that helps the finances of many families.”

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.

SLEEVE

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.
