Origin: San Antonio Palopó
Ethnicity: Maya Kaqchikel
Maria lives and creates her magnificent handicrafts in San Antonio Palopó with a group of women weavers. They travel everyday by public transport to get to Panajachel to sell her handmade items by foot. Without a stand or locale, Maria carries most of her items on her head and walks the streets looking for buyers.
Working 7-days a week, Maria is always eager to take custom orders and share new ideas!
