"My name is Eulalia Chonay and I founded this project in 2018. Ever since I was a kid, I was lucky enough to grow up in San Juan Compala, in a family with a rich cultural tradition. I would see my family working and even producing textiles for foreigners. I realized they fell in love with the color, beauty and detail in each piece. Now, I have created a small, unified team of entrepreneurial women weavers from the beautiful town of Agua Caliente outside of the Guatemalan town of Comalapa. Our sewing team is located on the Pacific Coast in the state of Suchitepéquez. Each artisan brings their talent and enthusiasm to “Kemon Collection” where our goal is to promote the ancestral knowledge and techniques of our town to improve the quality of life of all the participants of our project."
