Emmanuel and his wife Ana are young indigenous natives of Chiapas and were raised in the Maya culture there. For many generations his family and others in his village have worked in the traditional hand embroidery fabric business. Being more educated and progressive than most there, they saw that there was a need for a more modern approach to the quality control, marketing and wholesaling of their products. Knowing all the families in the area working this trade, over a period of time they organized them into a Co-Op to maximize the benefits to all. Emanuel buys the Manta fabric (100% unbleached cotton) and does all the design work and then farms out the cutting and embroidery to the best families in the nearby remote villages for that particular job. The fabric is pre-washed so there will be no additional shrinkage and the cotton fiber is sturdy, loosely woven, cool and the designs are absolutely unique and stunning.
Dennis, the owner of El Dorado Imports and for many years in business and a full time resident of Mexico discovered this unique Maya couple at a Tianguis (street fair) a couple of years ago in a nearby town. He recognized not only that their products were superior to most in this category but they were very organized and able to complete wholesale orders in a timely manner so they soon came to an agreement for representation of business outside Mexico. We hope to be able to develop a long term mutually rewarding business with you, providing these high quality and unique products to you and your customers.
