The Story Behind Wayil

The inspiration behind the establishment of Algodones Mayas was the preservation of the indigenous textile techniques and the natural colors of cotton.

In 1994 the Company was set up by two visionaries lovers of the textile culture and the magic of local handicrafts.

The name Wayil means native in indigenous langage referencing the native origin of the raw materials and the hands that craft each piece.

Today, the Company keeps the same principles innovating in designs as well as the creation of new products that meet the needs of international markets.

Each product has a story and it’s made by Guatemalan hands of natural color cotton and upcycled denim.
