MAKKELA

Beautiful and elegant in Mayan language

Each  product produced by Makkela has Mayan embroideries which represents the art of life according to the art of weaving.

The use of a back strap loom or a stand loom is an exclusive activity of indigenous women in Chiapas,Mexico.

According to the Mayan cosmology, the Goddess of Moon Ixchel was the patron of thread and her daughter, Ixchebelyax, the Goddess of embroidery.

The process of weaving symbolizes birth and life, opening and closing the loom and the weaver's effort and heart beats represents childbirth and the creation of a new life. Since ancient times weavers are considered mothers of creation.
