The daily operations of INDIGART Designs LLC are possible thanks to a committed team of Latinx millennials located in Sweden, Germany and the United States. We have partnered with five indigenous cooperatives in Guatemala that benefit over 500 women weavers and their families. Our creations would have not been possible without the artisanship and skills of Tz’utujil and K’iché women that want to share their art with the world.
