These recycled plastic bag products represent the marriage of traditional and modern, an ancient technology being applied to solve a contemporary environmental problem. Mayan Hands weavers use discarded plastic bags from their communities and the landfill to create eco-friendly products. The women collect, clean and sanitize the plastic bags, which in Guatemala come in all colors of the rainbow. They cut the bags into narrow strips, then weave the plastic 'yarn' on the traditional backstrap loom. The resulting sturdy, colorful fabric is then assembled into these trendy accessories, each delightfully unique.
