Woven by hand, this beautiful scarf features diamond motifs. They are a symbol of designs by Miguel Hernandez and his family. He alternates bands of royal blue with open spaces that feature the black warp threads so the scarf drapes beautifully. He names it for Totonicapan, a Guatemalan village renowned for its weaving arts.
Miguel first learned to read and write when he was 18, which is 11 years after he learned to weave. Using a handloom has always been a big part of his family's life and he now has more than 20 years of experience creating beautiful hand-loomed products. He was taught by his parents and preserves the tradition by teaching those in his community.
Two of his children are in high school and the eldest is attending the university.
