Description

Trama Textiles, the Association of Women for Artisan Development in Backstrap Loom Weaving, is an indigenous women´s weaving cooperative dedicated to supporting the livelihood and economic viability of traditional weaving methods. We work directly with 17 weaving cooperatives, representing 400 women from five regions in the western highlands of Guatemala: Sololá, Huehuetenango, Sacatepéquez, Quetzaltenango and Quiché. Our mission is to create fair waged work for the women of Guatemala; to honourably support our families and communities; and to preserve and develop our cultural traditions through the maintenance of our textile arts and their histories.
