These combed wool blankets are made by local elders in the Guatemalan Highlands on standing looms from pure un-dyed sheep wool. The handwoven pieces are available in a traditional arrow and stripe design in light grey with natural or dark grey with natural.
Artisan The Vicente Cooperative began as a single family traveling throughout Guatemala in order to sell their quality textiles. As demand grew, the family incorporated other members of their tiny mountain pueblo into the fold. This group is now comprised of ten families who collaborate on client orders in order to maintain a living and preserve this local artisan tradition, which has mainly been relegated to the older generation.
