Friendship Tintes Naturales Towels     

Naturally Dyed Cotton Kits!

Your support helps support women in Guatemala. As you weave these gorgeous naturally dyed towels, you will not only be creating a set of four all-cotton towels, but you will giving the women of San Rafael, Guatemala a chance of a better life and honoring the skills they have spent a lifetime learning.

Click here to learn more about the Natural Dye Project and the dozens of volunteers who helped these women increase their income through their desire to learn the art of natural dyeing, so that they could send their girls and boys to school for a better future. See video below,

You'll delight in the brilliant but earthy natural colors in shades of cochineal, indigo, osage orange, madder and overdye of osage orange with indigo. The natural, undyed 8/2 stripes makes the colors pop!

Easy to warp and weave on any 4-shaft loom with 24" weaving width and a 10-dent reed using a beautiful 8/2 cotton manufactured in Guatemala. Kit makes four generous-sized (19" x 28") towels woven in huckaback block design.

Hundreds of hours of volunteer time have gone into this kit from the first inception of the Natural Dye Project some five years ago, to the tireless volunteers working in the field, to the designing of the towel instructions, to our blogger, graphic designer, marketer and distributor--all volunteer hours so that the women of San Rafael can envision a better life for their daughters and sons. This is the first time in their lives these women will be able to earn a fair trade, living wage.

Share your excitement with other weavers so that they too can become part of this project. Share this page with them and together we can all connect with the women of San Rafael in a way that only fellow weavers can--dyer to loom!

Let's see how many Friendship Towels with Tintes Naturales we can weave as a community! We'll be keeping you updated on Cotton Clouds' Facebook page and through our blog . Be sure to sign up to follow this blog.

Supported by Mayan Hands .
