At Uxibal, if there’s one thing we love more than our craft, it’s tradition. And really, for us, the two things are very closely related. We take pride in the fact that every single product in our collection is made using traditional shoe and bag making techniques, as well as, incorporates ancient Mayan textiles that are still being produced in the same way they were centuries ago.
This year we decided to pick-up another tradition and get involved with the rug-making celebrations which are a mainstay tradition of Semana Santa (Holy Week) in Antigua, Guatemala. We created the rug in front of our Antigua HQ in honor of the procession for the Saint Francisco which passed through our block on Thursday. The result was fabulous and we can’t wait to do an even bigger rug next year! Check out the pictures below to see how it turned out.
Thanks to all that celebrated with us. I hope today you are celebrating old and/or new traditions of your own. Happy Easter!!!
