The Artisan's Story


Martina and Catarina were two of the first weavers who I worked with to make traditional Mayan doll clothes. We worked together to figure out the size, and they came through with beautiful small huipils for 18" dolls.

Making Santa Catarina Palopo Guatemala Doll Huipiles

Making the doll huipils takes many steps.  First the weaver prepares the warp for weaving and then weave the huipils.  Here Martina and Catarina carefully finish the neckhole and sew up the seams Making Santa Catarina Palopo Guatemala Doll Huipiles

By 2003 my doll Vanessa had made many friends and Catarina's daughter, Conception (right) had grown quite a bit from the first time I met her.
