Product of the Week: Our Hand Loomed Wool Carpets from Guatemala

Product of the Week Our Hand Loomed Wool Carpets from Guatemala
On our recent trip to Antigua, Guatemala, we attended the New World Crafts Fair, an annual event showcasing home decor products with a focus on incorporating traditional techniques with modern design. To us, the hit of the show were these strikingly beautiful wool carpets that we couldn't resist, incorporating aspiring color, amazing warmth, delicate texture, and striking style.


Crafted by artisans using a traditional pedal loom, these carpets are a great combination of wool and cotton that create Mayan and Hispanic inspired shapes and designs. These local weavers are committed to honoring the traditional techniques of craftsmanship that have been passed down through generations. As a result, the products preserve the Mayan culture, promote environmental and social awareness by using recycled materials, and develop sustainable trade opportunities for developing nations.


By purchasing these wool carpets, we help create sustainable communities & employment for the future of Guatemala! Help us help them, Promoting effective value chains and generating better jobs, thus reducing poverty. Help support over 500 Guatemalan artists! Carpets are currently in stock with sizes of 3x5' and 4x6' with the colors and designs shown Here. Hope you enjoy these beautiful pieces of art as much as we do!



Cheers,
Frank Campanale
