Guatemalan Inspiration >> Curated Collection

Please excuse my blog hiatus – I just returned from an exciting adventure, backpacking through Central America for 8 months! From Mexico to Panama I have been immersed in new experiences, culture, and inspiration. I happened to meet a motorbike rider in Mexico and became his pillion passenger for most of the trip – so it’s been a fantastic opportunity to explore off the beaten path a bit e.g. riding through Maya villages in the mountains as well as visit the touristy places.

Here is a collection of items I have curated, inspired by my time in beautiful Guatemala. I have a great deal of respect for the Guatemalan weavers and their textiles are a prominent sight throughout the country. I hope you like it!
