The Mayan Store
This gorgeous Guatemalan Horizontal Pillow Cover is handmade by skilled Guatemalan artisans for The Mayan Store. Striking a perfect balance between traditional tastes and contemporary design values, it’s a wonderful addition to the modern home. The Mayan Store works with over five hundred artisans in Guatemala’s Western Highlands. The local communities are famous for their wool covers and ponchos, which are perfect for the unpredictable local environment.
Diego Olivero and Gonzalo Pertiles founded the Mayan Store as a means to create collaborative craft connections between modern designers and traditional artisans. Working with highly skilled craftspeople, The Mayan Store creates unique and beautiful home decor pieces that will transform any space. Furthermore, the brand is passionate about sustainable and ethical production. As a result, they always compensate their artisan partners fairly for their skill and labor. They also work alongside the Guatemalan government’s Cero Hunger organization, which battles poverty with craft.
Thus, by promoting local traditions, Cero Hunger and The Mayan Store are battling poverty and malnutrition in rural Guatemala. Each piece from The Mayan Store carries a mix of stories with it.
Those of the artisans, and the rich indigenous traditions they maintain, mix with those of the designers and their modern tastes. Blended together, these stories form a portrait of contemporary Guatemala, and its wonderful diversity.
