Itzamná, the main Maya god who created fire and the Earth, was the ruler of the heavens, the day and the night. Itzamná gifted the Maya people the arts of weaving, literacy, medicine, science, art, sculpture and agriculture.

General Belt Information
How It's Made
Every Yaxa belt originates from a traditional Maya textile woven by women in a few artisan communities in Guatemala’s central and western highlands. Our textiles are crafted using original weaving methods that remain largely unaltered since the reign of the Maya civilization. Woven from cotton yarns, the women dye the material using local materials - hibiscus flowers (pink), carrots (orange), quile herbs (green), bark from avocado trees (beige) - to achieve the desired colors.
Your contribution and support of Yaxa will improve conditions for the Maya people. The generous purchase of a Yaxa belt helps fund the mission of the Maya Traditions Foundation.
