Trendy and tribal-inspired, the Mayan Pyramid Beaded Pendant Necklace makes a bold statement. Perfect for pairing with whites or denim for a great boho look. Made by women artisans of La Casa in Guatemala.
Since 2000, La Casa Cotzal has designed a range of Guatemalan handcrafted pieces produced by artisan communities throughout the country. Mayan women traditionally have been backstrap loom weavers, but increasingly they are learning to use pedal looms as well. In traditional Guatemalan weaving, the two main specialized techniques are ikat and supplementary weft brocade. Artisans at La Casa are versed in both weaving techniques as well as in intricate bead work. The work provided by La Casa is vital to the women's families and communities.
