Most of the designer’s pieces are unique, so sometimes cannot be replicated for future orders. Depending on the dimensions of the unique fabric, there can be made more items. The reason is that the tribe people don’t like replicating the same patterns; when you look closely, you’ll discover differences, the other fabrics will differ a bit from the photo, variations will come only regarding the colors, both for the background and the patterns. So, feel free to ask any questions,  or if necessary a preview, before making the order, you can request a close-up photo of the embroidery.

Description

Malamam home

Patchworks come from mayan weavings around the globe, from Huehuetenango (one of the 22 departments of Guatemala), situated in the western highlands sharing borders with Mexico in the north and populated by one of the most diverse ethnic compositions in Guatemala. The predominant ethnic group are the Mam, but they share the territory with Chuje, Kanjobal and Jacalteca, which is why many dialects are spoken along the territory: mam, q’anjob’al, chuj, popti’, chalchiteko, awakateko, akateko, tektiteko, k’iche’ and Spanish. Each of these nine Maya ethnic groups speaks their own language.
The rest of the story lies in your bag book written only for the owner.

Tactics

The garment is decorated with geometrical representations of the most common patterns – the symbolic bird of Guatemala, the Quetzal (emblem of the country that we can also find on the national flag). Considered to be messengers between heaven and earth, they are worn as often by men as by women. The colors vary from yellow to red, violet and black and are inspired by the 4 colors of corn that grows in the region of Xela. The manual embroidery has different symbols such as dogs, cats and horses, also frequent subjects, they are merely an influence of the colonial era. They were introduced to the country upon the arrival of Spanish conquistadors.  Find out the designers words on this special item upon purchase in the Booklet.
