FusionDeMaya-LogoAs a textile artist, product designer, and collector of indigenous textiles, I focus on fine craftsmanship and indigenous textile traditions. I am owner, designer, and colorist for Fusion de Maya that specializes in one-of-a-kind scarves, shawls, and decorative pillows using various cottons, silk, linen, and bamboo, and chenille threads. The products are skillfully woven by indigenous weavers on traditional backstrap looms who belong to two weaving cooperatives in the highlands of Guatemala—Asociación Maya de Desarrollo and Fundación Tradiciones Mayas. Because of my association with these two fair-wage textile cooperatives, Mayan weavers are provided income opportunities while sustaining traditional practices.

Cultural-Cloth-3Cultural Cloth collaborates primarily with women throughout the developing world to produce exquisite home textiles and personal accessories. Our colorful retail shop is filled with gorgeous textiles. The shop is a test kitchen where we cook up products that have a sustainable chain of production. Products that test well become eligible for wholesale production targeted to a select group of nationwide retailers. As lifelong textile artists, we understand the demands of our market and are available for consultation on product feedback, design, and development. We offer tours to Guatemala to "buddy up" with the Mayan women whom we’ve taught to hook rugs and successfully shepherded them through the International Folk Art Market application process.
