Overview

Overview

TRAMA Textiles, the Association of Women for Artisan Development in Backstrap Loom Weaving, works directly with 17 weaving cooperatives, representing 400 women from five regions in the western highlands of Guatemala: Sololá, Huehuetenango, Sacatepéquez, Quetzaltenango and Quiché. We were founded in 1988 to help women who had been widowed or orphaned by Guatemala’s devastating civil war. Our mission is to create work for fair wages for the women of Guatemala; to honourably support our families and communities; and to preserve and develop our cultural traditions through the maintenance of our textile arts and their histories.
