ARCHIVE NEW YORK

Growing up in a home full of Guatemalan textiles collected by her parents, Michigan native Amira Marion developed her own love for the nation's fabrics. In 2014, she founded her Brooklyn-based home textile collection, Archive New York, as a way to reinterpret traditional Guatemalan motifs and weaving methods. Her team begins its design process by hunting down antique and increasingly rare fabric samples, illustrations, and photos of beautiful handwoven textiles and then reconnecting with the original artisan group associated with each design. By providing multiple nonprofits and artisans with fair-trade employment, Archive New York is working toward a greater goal of ethical and sustainable products, and by carefully preserving each original textile and pattern, the brand also strives to honor the integrity of Mayan culture and heritage. This textile was woven by a Guatemalan artisan in the style of the classic striped corte (Guatemalan skirt) from the village of Chuarrancho. It was woven using a foot loom and naturally dyed indigo threads.
