Baby Booties - De Colores Art

No reviews

A great gift for new mothers, these adorable booties are made by Guatemalan artisans at De Colores Art. Each bootie is handmade integrating small pieces of huipil, (wee-peel) a traditional blouse worn by Mayan women. To the knowledgeable observer a huipil identifies the wearer's village, social and marital status, religious background, wealth, and individual personality. A well-woven huipil can last 20 to 30 years before it's sold at market and starts a second life.

De Colores Art, based in the culturally rich, indigenous Lake region of Guatemala, offers employment opportunities in knitting and embroidery to the local villagers. Free training, flexible hours, community education and the use of recycled products are all hallmarks of their organization.
