Pixan Collection

House of Design Pixan is a fair trade textile workshop in the western Highlands of Guatemala. This association of indigenous artisan weavers is expert in the ancient techniques of back-strap and pedal loom weaving and embroidery.  It is a unique, innovative and appropriate social business model that gives indigenous women access to opportunities in a globalized world. Through this model they do not migrate from their communities, preventing discrimination and harassment. Pixan is an initiative of AMA and a program funded by the Inter-American Foundation and the Highland Support Project. 

Pixan is a word in Nahualt that means spirit.

So everything we do carries the spirit of a woman... Spirit of innovation... Spirit of fashion...
