Before Santiago Atitlan, there was Tz’kin Jay, the House of the Birds. Named for the myriad number of birds who make their home alongside the Tz’utujil on the shores of Lake Atitlan, Tz’kin Jay developed their weavings to reflect the creativity of their world. This collection celebrates the intricacies and contradictions within weaving. It plays with twisted strings woven smoothly, thick brocades with a fine delicacy, light and dark, earth and sky. This collection marks the growth of Cojolya’s design and skill, an apogee of weaving.
