These beautiful palm mats were hand woven by the incredible skilled hands of artisans, in Oaxaca and Guerrero, Mexico. The local Amugos walk up the mountains, cut the palm, boil, and put it in the sun to dry. The word MAKAUA in the ancient Nahuatl language has two meanings: “hand to hand” or the act of “giving a hand”. These mats are proof of a hundred year old tradition alive and well.
