WAIST LOOM WEAVING / SAN JUAN CANCUC, CHIAPAS

The backstrap loom is an instrument that has been used since pre-Hispanic times to make clothing; It consists of a set of pieces of wood and reed that build a structure in which the threads intersect.

Once the loom is ready, one end is tied to a tree and the other is adjusted to the weaver's waist by means of a mechapal or band, to be able to pass the shuttle from one side to the other and generate a canvas.

Colors, Textures & Pre-Order

Our products are made in creative and productive collaboration with Mexican artisans. Their elaboration involves manual processes that generate variations in colors and textures. It is important to note that the actual color of the garment may vary from the color shown on the screen.

For products or variants that are available only on request (pre-order) we ask that 3 to 4 weeks of production be considered, in addition to the shipping time.
