Cool temperatures abound in the Guatemalan highlands – home of these sumptuous combed wool blankets that are made by local elders on standing looms from pure undyed wool. While these soft throws will prevent the chills, they are also an ideal year-round textile as they wick moisture away from the body, are extremely durable, and also act as a natural temperature regulator that provide protection from both cold and heat.
These handwoven pieces are available in a traditional arrow and stripe design in undyed ivory with black or natural indigo blue. The light grey is currently sold out. If you'd like to be added to our waiting list, please contact us directly at the email below.
This cooperative began as a single family traveling throughout Guatemala in order to sell their quality textiles. As demand grew, the family incorporated other members of their tiny mountain pueblo into the fold. This group is now comprised of ten families who collaborate on client orders in order to maintain a living and preserve this local artisan tradition, which has mainly been relegated to the older generation.
