Spinning cotton yarn in Guatemala.  Drop spindles are not that common anymore in Guatemala because the weavers and spinners usually buy yarn.  However many of the weavers we work with dye their yarn with natural dyes made from plants, vegetables, fruits etc.  They make beautiful weavings which are turned into purses, napkins, placemats and so much more.

"I love this bag!!! It is exactly how I expected it to be. I use it for going to the gym, it's perfect for that. The long handles make it easy to carry it over one shoulder. Shipping time was excellent."  We receive the nicest comments from our customers on these weekender bags!

Introduction
