Four brothers in Antigua, Guatemala started El Tun twenty-five years ago to preserve and share their traditional methods of weaving. They inherited a rich history of passion and quality which is spun into each fiber on their looms, powered by nothing more than the pulse of their feet. It’s from the very beat of their foot on the treadle that these four brothers took their name. El Tun references the traditional drum found throughout Guatemala. The steady beat of their work preserves both tradition and their environment by forgoing machinery.
