Our Zunil Birds Necklaces have hand-embroidered textile from the village of Zunil and Santiago Atitlan. The necklace combines vintage Zunil textile with the beautiful, colorful, and embroidered birds from Santiago.
The indigenous people of the village of Santiago Atitlán are experts in embroidering birds using their ancestors' techniques.
We buy our bird embroideries and our vintage textile directly from the makers so your support will enable us to keep buying their beautiful handicrafts and support their art.
We have matched the textile in a colorful, yet fashionable ombination and added our classic ceramic beads. You can match your necklace with our Santiago Bird Earrings.
All of our jewelry is handmade by Mayan artisans in Guatemala. Your support has a direct impact on the opportunities and welfare of these artisan communities.
