In Guatemala, Indigenous communities have historically protected our environment and remaining biodiversity. Their deep connections to the land and respect for Mother Nature play a key role in the protection of natural resources; which has also placed them at great risk for fighting against companies seeking to destroy and loot ancestral lands for economic gain.
Indigenous knowledge, wisdom and customs are incredibly valuable resources to cultivate a sustainable relationship with mother earth (madre tierra). Indigenous Peoples around the world, through ancestral practices that often integrate spiritual and cultural components, are crucial stewards of our environment and its fast-depleting resources. Their deep respect for nature and strong sense of belonging are traditions and belief systems worth absorbing.
WASH Wash your textiles and wool pieces carefully by hand with a PH neutral soap. Due to the natural dyes used in our products, colored water may run on the first washes; especially with darker dyed fabrics. But don't worry, this is normal and won’t stain other fabrics.
DRY Air dry only. Do not put your textiles and wool pieces in the drying machine, this will jeopardize the integrity of your product.
HANDMADE COTTON PIECES ‣ delicate wash with cold water ‣ preferably wash by hand ‣ hang dry ‣ steam, do not iron
HANDMADE WOOL PIECES ‣ spot wash with warm cloth + water ‣ vacuum to remove dust ‣ hang dry
Due to the handmade nature of our products, the color and patterning may vary slightly from piece to piece. We value both the imperfection and the organic magic in the colors of our products. We believe this gives a uniquely distinct character to each of our finished crafts.
LONGEVITY Avoid long periods of direct sun exposure. Natural plant-based dyes compared to synthetic dyes tend to fade in brightness with time. Follow our care instructions to ensure your new textiles stay bright and beautiful for years to come.
