Since 1930, weaving Jipijapa hats is a tradition at Bécal, Campeche. Underground caves are required to make these hats since they provide enough humidity so that the palm does not break or suffer any damage. The art of weaving Jipijapa hats was added to the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage Lists on 5 December 2012.
All beaded Huichol patterns are unique and they are handmade with 5590 crystal beads (chaquiras). A wooden weaving loom is used to make each pattern. The Huichol artisan takes one to three days to make one, depending on the complexity of each pattern. All patterns are handmade by Huichol artisans who preserve their culture through their unique art. We are a 100% sustainable brand.
