Sample Making Summary
How it Works
MT will schedule an appointment with a backstrap weaving artisan partner to create the sample textile at MT’s offices in Panajachel. The Sales and Product Development Manager will work with the artisan to begin the design, assuring colors and dimensions are correct. The designer can approve the sample, do one round of revisions on the sample, or reject the sample, costs do apply. The sample making process typically takes 3-4 months to finalize.
MT works with artisan partners to best recreate the submitted textile design on a backstrap loom. Design Partners must complete and submit a MT Textile Design Submission Form for every textile sample they wish to create. This sheet includes all relevant information for the textile using computer-generated specifications. The textile design colors and dimensions must be clearly detailed. An inspiration photo is optional.
