Finding Chico Area Artists

Mira Talbott-Pope

Mira Talbott-Pope’s company, TLC Clothing Designs, makes unique handmade clothing from traditional hand-woven Guatemalan skirt fabric with respect and admiration for the beauty of the material and expertise of its originators. All fabric is purchased at a local market where women have sold their own skirt fabric either out of necessity or in order to purchase newer, more modern designs.

This fabric is then crafted with an intention to keep the beauty and “ethnic” look, while adapting to the American lifestyle. Three local tailors are employed at fair wages, thus assisting their families (14 members) in this town of low employment.
