Founded in 1994, Algodones Mayas was created by two visionaries to share the magic of handwoven textiles. They grow and cultivate pre-hispanic cotton, designing elegant decorative pieces and accessories. Their handwoven cotton pieces help preserve Guatemala’s rich culture, land, natural colours and motives.
Algodones Mayas believes in empowering and encouraging women, this is why almost 80% of their artisans are hardworking mothers and daughters who never give up and make their best effort every day to be better. They proudly celebrate and honour the women that inspire them and make the beautiful Algodones Mayas designs come true.
Their ethical pursuit is to produce objects mindfully, rather than consume mindlessly. Algodones Mayas always aims to preserve the environment and following the collaboration with “The New Denim Project” they now use upcycled denim for all their blue colours and tones. They are passionate about cultural preservation: "We recovered native lxcaco, Cuyuscate and Jade cotton, a form of cotton which almost went extinct in the 90s. We do not produce objects for status or vanity, but to meet a purpose from within. Objects do not fill, they fulfill. Our objects carry intention”. This is our philosophy: preserving and celebrating our culture and homes."
Inspired by nature and created by a timeless and ancestral weaving technique, these rugs will add subtle color, warmth and sophistication to any room.
