Taller Maya is a collective brand of Mexican design - formed by artisan social enterprises in the Yucatan Peninsula to work to keep Mayan culture alive. Through fair compensation and commercialization of artisanal craft pieces, they work to strengthen sustainable income for the artisans.
These charming handmade brooms are exclusive to Obakki - you won't find them anywhere else. They were created in collaboration with Taller Maya and their Mayan artisans in the Yucatan.
Fibres from the Henequin plant are beautifully wrapped in traditional Mayan-coloured threads with a leather loop for hanging. The Henequen fibre is closely related to sisal and is most traditionally used to create hammocks, baskets and tablecloths. Mayan artists with practiced hands at using this ancestral material meticulously weave strand after strand into these delicate, decorative brooms.
