THE ARTISAN : LUCHOMETIK
Luchometik is a Tzotzil word meaning women brocading on a waist loom. It comes from a Mayan language spoken by the indigenous Tzotzil Mayan people in the Mexican state of Chiapas. Six women artisans founded Luchometik in 2013 after realizing that they all had the same desire to learn and were in search of opportunities improve their lives. They seek to learn about quality of product, color and design combinations, as well as sales and finance of their products. Since they began, more women have joined with the intention of learning every day.
