Hand Loomed Zipper Pouch by Batz Textiles

Women in Guatemala sewing and weaving for a better life.

These pouches are created by a collective called Batz Textiles, in San Juan La Laguna. In Mayan Astrology, the Sign B'atz is about life, destiny, and infinity. It is the Nawal of creativity and is seen as a representative of all the arts.  Batz is a small sisters-owned shop that uses natural dyes, hand spinning, and weaving to create their fabrics. They support local indigenous weavers and seamstresses. These textile products honor traditional methods dating back to the ancient Mayan and are world renowned for quality and craftsmanship.

Introduced by our friends from  Resilient Threads, PennyLark Finery visited Batz and enjoyed an afternoon with the weavers, designers, seamstresses and founders, and brought these back for all of you!  

Indigenous women have been weaving on back strap looms since they were little girls. The patterns and colors from the various regions are embedded in their minds and hearts. Supporting Batz keeps indigenous craft alive, provides for women and their families, and reminds us of the power of women doing meaningful work together, all over the world.

STORY

TELL ME SOMETHING GOOD

I recently discovered this amazing website and ordered necklaces for my daughters. I received them in 2 days! Not only did they arrive quickly, they were carefully packed and beautifully wrapped. I wanted to peek so bad but resisted because I wouldn’t be able to duplicate the wrapping. This website empowers, features and recognizes women artists and honors their work.
They cared so much they asked for feedback and responded when I provided it. This will definitely be one of my go to sites for gift giving.

We all need that special thing for our ourselves/lover/sister/friend.

The sweet thing is that the research is done on where to intentionally drop our cash! I simply love the products, stories behind who creates the products and the fact that I can depend on the best curated collections.

This all makes Pennylark Finery my go-to place - and why I’m getting ready to put order number four out the door. Thank you, PennyLark Finery!
