The deep, natural green palette and floral ornaments of our shiny aprons recall the earthy domain of Yum Kaax, the Mayan god of the forests.
Yum Kaax was worshipped as being the guardian of the woods and protector of wildlife, including both fauna and flora. For this crucial role, he was dear to Mayan hunters and farmers, who offered him special prayers and rituals that asked for bountiful harvests and hunting trips to nourish their people.
