        The Pueblo Collection

        Santiago Atitlán is a modern day Maya city full of color, indigenous resilience, and a dynamic contrast between lakeside solitude and the cacophony of the mercado. Our Pueblo collection draws from the surrounding tin roofs and bright walls, the calls of fruit vendors, and the sounds of women’s hands clapping as they make tortillas to echo our pueblo’s gritty spirit. Cojolya’s women weavers channel the strength of their foremothers and the intricate beauty of their sisters’ traditional garments to create a woven portrait of their home all in our embroidery and brocade. Pueblo is a testament to how Santiago Atitlán’s weavers only need to look outside their window to continue reimagining the rich cultural heritage of the Tz’utujil people through textile art.
