The textiles used in MATIOSH are handmade by indigenous men and women who proudly preserve the style of ancient embroidery that is transmitted from generation to generation. Textile shoes, bags and straps/ belts are not printed or copied. They are original as the same Maya culture for centuries.
These textiles are used in a variety of costumes throughout the interior of the country. Depending on the community, town or region, go varying colors, embroidery and symbols on each piece. Each community has its own costume, culture, identity and even their own Maya language.
MATIOSH takes this rich cultural and ancestral diversity to share it with you. For your support and preference to local and MATIOSH, poor families enjoy a life with stable and well-paid job, maintaining their customs and worldview of life.
For you … MATIOSH. Thank you!
