HOW IT'S MADE

We believe in the importance of knowing what went into your purchase, from time to materials. From the hands of our partner artisans to you, this unique Handwoven Indigo Scarf requires significant labor, skill and generational knowledge to create.

TIME SPENT
21 DAYS (3 WEEKS)

Each scarf takes 21 days to produce, from spinning the cotton to designing & dyeing the yarn, and finally weaving the final product on a back-strap loom. The white designs are created by tying carefully placed knots in the yarn before dyeing - one knot in the wrong place and the whole design will be thrown off!

FEATURED TECHNIQUE
NATURAL DYE

All Casa Flor Ixcaco products use in-house handspun cotton & natural dye. We would like to note that the price of all naturally dyed indigo products will be slightly higher than the other colors because indigo is the hardest dye to produce & requires extra time and skill to get the correct color.

CULTURAL SIGNIFICANCE
LAKE SYMBOLISM

Each design holds historical significance in the Mayan culture - the indigo color and diamond shape symbolize the energy, color and heart of Lake Atitlan, while the dotted lines represent corn grown around the Lake, and the peaks and dips representing Guatemala's mountains, volcanoes and valleys.
