Guatemala is the motherland of hand-loomed textiles. For centuries, the beautiful hands of women, AND men, have used the back-strap and foot looms as their writing instrument to record their history, their dreams, and their love of their country.
Our Limited Edition Hand-loomed Cotton is weaved in the highlands of Guatemala by Maya master weavers. They loomed our cotton using century old techniques that cannot be duplicated by machines. Our natural cotton is every thing you want for your baby, soft, natural, and chemical free.

"Finally! The Paloma “mom & mini” Collection I️ designed with my mom at @mikoleonkids is now available! Hard working moms are who inspired me to design a romper for women; this romper allows me to play with my kids and still looks great to go on a date, or take a meeting at the office!
Seriously impossible to wrinkle fabric is made sustainably on a foot loom in a tiny town near San Marcos, Paloma, Guatemala!
The Paloma Romper is designed to fit loose so you have room to high step over those baby gates. For size reference I’m 5’7” and 27 waist in most jeans and I️ wear a small in @mikoleonkids women. And don’t forget we have something for baby boy and girl to match you in the same fabric!! ❤️❤️❤️"

The markets in Guatemala are an attack on your senses with the explosion of colors! We have used a tamed color palette on our woven fabrics, but they still carry with every row the heart of our Mayan weavers.

We have been inspired by the textile world's ability to connect values, hoping our inspiration stimulates buyers and consumers to live, create and shop purposefully. We invite everyone to help us promote conscious consumption and to invest in sustainable materials and products; we must remember that what we do to the environment, ultimately we do to ourselves. Be conscious. Inspire and be inspired!
