Casa de Diseños pixan

Pixan is made up of 150 weavers, across 9 communities in Santa Catarina Ixhuacatan up in the western highlands of Guatemala.  An initiative of its mother organization, Asociación de Mujeres del Altiplano (AMA), Pixan creates opportunity for weavers in historically marginalized communities by championing fair pay, safe working conditions and connecting them with global partners.

PIXAN is a word in Quiché, our native Mayan language, that means Spirit. Therefore, everything that we do has an innovative spirit... feminine spirit... a spirit of fashion.
