Tomasa is one of the main weavers in the Quiejel women's cooperative outside of Chichicastenango.. She specializes in crafting traditional hand-embroidered belts in both geometric and floral motifs. Her technique is highly skilled and it takes her an entire month to complete just one "faja" that we then turn into a specialty camera strap. When you purchase a camera strap from our woven collection, you're directly supporting Tomasa, her family and the other weavers in this weaving cooperative.
