Yaxa celebrates high-end craftsmanship and slow fashion with each of its spirited belts. Weaving was the means by which the Maya communicated their thoughts and feelings about the natural world, how stories were told, and histories recorded. We at Yaxa feel strongly about the preservation of the Maya culture, legacy and creative processes through the safeguarding and promotion of dying art forms and ancient techniques such as weaving, leather-making and embroidery. Furthermore, we are committed to our local partners and seek to create opportunities for our network of artisans. We work closely with Maya artisan communities in the Guatemalan highlands who provide for their families and through their craftsmanship and whose livelihood can improve significantly when given the right opportunities. Our collection combines the talent of Maya weavers with the deep-found love of the ancient culture by its three founders. In 2013, we three met at the University of St Andrews where many adventures began over the course of our four undergraduate years together. Following a trip to Guatemala in 2018, we fell in love with the rich history that the Maya people wove and wore on their persons daily.
