MH16 - Laguna House Dress

A little history about our artisanal textiles:

Our foot-loomed house dresses are made with 100% cotton thread and weaved in the highlands of Guatemala. Our master weaver, Octaviano learned to weave from his parents as a child, he has been weaving for 4 decades! Each yard takes 6-8 hours to weave! The weave design is centuries old, we have updated the pattern slightly to avoid wasting some of the fabric during confection of the dress.

The beauty of this dress goes beyond its appearance, the work that goes into making each yard, the fact that it also provides work for skilled artisans and a way out of poverty for their families, and last, it also helps preserve century old weaving techniques and traditions, all these, make this dress the perfect sustainable gift!

All hand-crafted, natural, eco cool, sustainable, and fair trade guided.
