AG-C100 Fertility Vera Scarf - Charcoal

About our Pik'bil (Fertility) Vera Scarf
Pik'bil (In Q'eqchi' it means fertility) is a traditional technique Maya women loom in the Cobán area of Guatemala. The weave is guaze-like, soft and airy; each piece is decorated with intricate patterns depicting traditions and religious beliefs of the Maya people. Ours are a limited edition, created on a Back-strap Loom by world class women weavers from the "IXBALAMK'E" (God of the moon) co-op from the Samac Cobán, Alta Verapaz area.
Our goal is to provide sustainable work to the 40 beautiful women that belong to this co-op! Each scarf takes an entire month to weave! The Women in the Cobán region wear Pik'bil blouses during the 9 months of gestation and on special occasions such as local fairs, Christmas and New Year. Enjoy!
