What we do

TRAMA Textiles is an Association of Women for Artisan Development in Backstrap Loom Weaving in Guatemala.

Our Weaving School

In our weaving school, you have the rare opportunity to learn the ancient art of backstrap loom weaving from our expert women weavers.

You can choose what to make from a range of options, from a simple sample piece to a complex embroidered table runner. You select the colors and pattern that you use in your design. When you finish, you get to take home whatever you make – a unique souvenir of your time in Guatemala. Learn more here.
