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.
All proceeds from TLC Clothing above cost go back to the Creando Mi Futuro children’s art, education and nutrition project in San Pedro la Laguna, Guatemala. Creando Mi Futuro is under the umbrella of the Chico Doroteia Pathways Foundation.
Creando Mi Futuro states: “Art opens minds, good nutrition promotes better learning. Education creates vision and possibilities. Together, this program is affecting the lives of 33 children in San Pedro la Laguna, Guatemala, enhancing their ability for a better life in their own country.”
