Cold temperatures are common in the highlands of Guatemala – home of these sumptuous combed wool blankets that are made by local elders on standing looms from locally sourced wool and natural dyes. 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 body temperature regulator that provide protection from both cold and heat. We have these pieces available in natural unbleached ivory with light grey or natural indigo.
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.
