Celebrating Guatemala's legendary handloomed textiles, Maria Godoy de Gimpel shares their magic. This set of 18 glossy paper placemats depict the huipil blouses worn in San Pedro Sacatepéquez. The intricate motifs in purple, fuchsia, yellow, orange, green and red can be seen in the Museo Ixchel del Traje Indígena, which holds the copyright for this image.
The colors come from vegetable dyes, certified by the PEFC (Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification).
A portion of the proceeds is donated to the Ixchel Museum to carry on their mission.
As these placemats are made of paper, they cannot by cleaned and are thus intended for single use only.
