Green Is In!

I'm always thinking about how we can make some beautiful designs in Guatemala that use recycled materials. I think I finally stumbled upon an idea that will be fabulous for Spring. Whenever I have visited the various town markets, I always see women selling old huipils (traditional blouses) and other hand woven and embroidered fabrics. In many cases what you find are either scraps or garments that are no longer being worn. Ding Ding. Why not repurpose this fabric to make lots of colorful and wonderful necklaces and bracelets? For January 2010, Dunitz & Company will introduce a variety of designs that incorporate these textiles. Stay tuned! For your eyes now, a preview. ND
