This set of six handwoven placemats feature a volcano motif typical of the traditional woven blouse (huipil) of San Juan Cotzal. 

Only one set available! 100% of profits benefit the CT Undocufund, to provide grants for COVID-19 relief for undocumented immigrants in Connecticut. 

Why it's on sale: This was a sample, and we have decided not to put this product into production on a larger scale. Short edges are not perfectly straight (as they were woven on the backstrap loom) and some of the edges have a tendency to curl a bit (see photos). But the design is stunning!

 Origin: Cotzal, El Quiché, Guatemala
