At San Juan Cancuc women knit by hand, on waist loom, the same way it was done three thousand years ago.

The geometry of the brocade in which the Cancuc dresses are drawn is unique; its colorful rectangles seem to be computerized pixels that are contained by the jaws of a jaguar; the long fangs protect whoever wears this dress.

We’ve collaborated with the Mariposas group in Cancuc since 2012.
