Details

Signifying "woman's heart" in the Mayan Kaqchikel language, Ranm Ixoqi' is an artisan group whose female members have been working together since the 1990s to empower themselves and women like them through the creation of Guatemalan handicrafts. Members of Ranm Ixoqi' live in the Chimaltenango department in the central part of the country; they organize the purchase of raw materials and the division of labor for the group's various projects for which traditional methods such as the backstrap loom are utilized. Here they present a loom-woven rayon scarf with fringe at both ends in gorgeous deep blue tones. Childhood trips to Guatemala's Lake Atitlán are treasured memories for the group's members and inspired the use of azure and midnight blue thread for this accessory.
