La Voz women’s collective is located on the shores of Lake Atitlan, in San Juan La Laguna, in Guatemala.

They use premium locally grown cotton and soft silk that they dye naturally using gathered and grown plants from their surroundings.
Vida Nueva is a women’s collective of 15 talented and brave Zapotec women outside of Oaxaca, Mexico. Weaving is traditionally men’s work in their community and these women faced many obstacles when starting their collective. They are bold and admirable, and best of all, they do amazing work. Using large foot looms, each item is carefully woven into beautiful products for your home, but first the premium wool must be sheared from local sheep and then naturally dyed using bugs and plants from the areas surrounding their home.
