This project belongs entirely to the community. The role of the association is to provide support and facilitate the implementation of the project.
The project has been developed under the direction of visionary entrepreneurs who came together to be part of the change, and with the support of local authorities, volunteers and sponsors.
For us Santa Catarina Palopó is only the first step. Our objective is to replicate this model in the rest of the communities near the lake.

Santa Catarina Palopó
The history behind textiles
The design starts from the idea that Santa Catarina is a large huipil that is drying on the mountain and that connects the lake with the sky of Atitlán.
The design is based on several principles, which must be respected so that the set looks harmonious and that people identify them as Santa Catarina designs.
