Welcoming and friendly. Paz has dedicated her time and effort into a beautifully organised array of fabrics, clothing and home furnishings. She is talkative and enthusiast about almost anything. A must-see when visiting san cristobal del la casas.

I loved the designs, they are unique!!!! The idea of using traditional mayan sewing to make modern and colorful designs was great, at the same time that helps Indigenous woman earn decent livelihoods. If this wasn´t enough, the owner is very nice and helpful!!!
