Guatemala Weaves

A limited collection of traditional weaves for the Highlands of Guatemala. From different villages, the Huipiles (shirts), skirts and shawls vary in patterns and color uses. All items are hand woven and again reflect the amazing skills of the women who make them. Some shirts can take over 6 months to weave.

Prices Range from 20-250 Euro

Gujarati Doors

Amongst my favorite items are the massive Indian Doors from Gujarat. Weighing more than 200 kg, the doors are formidable Coming with their proper frame the doors may be installed in a space of no less than 1.5 meters wide. An installed door can be seen in the shop serving as double protection against any would be thief.

 

We will give you free advice and assistance on how to install the twin doors at your request.
