HELLO  SUMMER and FALL 2017  from  FUSION DE MAYA  
Another order of new scarves have been woven by the expert Mayan traditional weavers at the Desorrollo weaving cooperativa in the Guatemala Highlands to my design specifications. They are made with beautiful silky-bamboo fibers with occasional soft bamboo chenille textural additions.
