Product Description

San Antonio Aguas Calientes is a Maya – Kakchikel town in the Guatemalan highlands. The town is named after Saint Anthony of Padua and is renowned for its natural warm water springs. However, the town is best known for its intricate fabrics, which stand out among Guatemalan textiles. The women of this town are superbly skilled weavers, world-famous for their sumptuous embroidered cotton local güipil [/wi-pil/], a traditional Mayan blouse. The fabric is carefully hand-woven and embroidered in narrow strips using a back-strap loom and colorful shades of a variety of bright colored cotton yarn. The intricately decorated pieces of fabric are later joined together with heavy embroidery stitches to make the distinctive güipil.

Although all güipil in San Antonio Aguas Calientes are created in the same local tradition, each weaver subtly incorporates her own patterns of bright colors in zig-zagging geometric shapes, animals, and flowers, depending on individual style and taste. This makes each piece of woven fabric unique and special. Each one of our San Antonio Aguas Calientes Mayaxus sneakers is made from one of these pieces of woven fabric and is therefore unique. The left shoe is not exactly the same as the right!
