Agave is a local, native material to Tituque Abajo, being the primary plant grown in the area for tequila production. Tequila production requires the use of the heart of the agave plant, leaving the spears as byproduct, otherwise serving no additional purpose. The Guatemalan weavers, however, have developed a craft using the wasted leaves for fiber. There are currently no efforts to sustainably cultivate organic cotton, linen, hemp or bamboo in Guatemala. Our goal is to establish and scale a community that can eventually sustain itself by growing and weaving with Agave fiber.
