Taken before my journey to New Mexico a month ago: Martína and I, my first weaving teacher and likely one of the very few old time traditional backstrap weavers coming around this way to teach people like me. She's been weaving for over 70 years in Mayan Guatemala - if only my Spanish was good enough to be able to understand her stories. #weaversofinstagram #backstraploom #kaqchikel #weaving #backstrapweaving

Hoy puse a prueba mi primer ejercicio de telar de cintura; un morralito 🙌🏻💕 Uno debe de tener la humildad siempre de aprender y de querer preservar conocimientos del pasado. Agradezco a @yautic que ha tenido la paciencia y el corazón para enseñar a muchas personas interesadas en el telar de cintura. 🙏🏼💕 Espero algún día hacer mi propio huipil 💪🏼 #telardecintura #backstraploom #backstrapweaving #viernestradicional #noolvidestusraices

#tapestryweaving on a #backstraploom
Is it possible? Yes. Is it easy? No.
But I'm really appreciating having reliable, preprogrammed sheds and readily adjustable tension.
At the same time, I've been reminded that the reason I haven't been backstrap weaving lately is still only four years old, and that's still a pretty good reason. For the next sample I may wind a backstrap-style warp, but strap it to a frame, Navajo-style, so I can walk away quickly when needed.

We visited a women's collective in San Juan today where we saw Mayan women demonstrate how to spin thread from cotton, dye it with leaves, bark, and vegetables, and weave it into beautiful fabric on a waist-loom (also backstrap loom). This scarf was made by a woman named Nohemi. The thread was dyed with carrots and coconut husks. The little cloud is cotton.

Impromptu #weaving session on our last trip. ✈️ I was fortunate enough to be passing by as this lovely maya woman was setting up her #backstraploom. This is how the textiles on our bags are made. 🌈 She was happy to let us hang around for a few minutes and watch. #covetedmoment
