Pieces are created by artisans from the communities of Yaxunah and Los Laureles using macramé technique with braids of cotton thread of different sizes and thicknesses to connect rectangular links made from recovered bull horn remnants that are carved and polished.
BEEL means “path” in Maya; it represents life in motion, walking along the path creating and transforming the elements of nature into unique pieces that transcend the beauty of handmade.
BEEL is the analogy of the crossroads of the artisans from the communities of Yaxunah and Los Laureles, and of each of the people involved in this project, who have created a unique fusion between the Maya textile world and contemporary culture by coming together.
