frequently travel to the city of Antigua in Guatemala, teaming up with local artisans and other small
businesses to manufacture our collections.
How long have you been in business?
We launched our Jazal Color website in November 2016, and have been in business for almost one year.
How would you describe your business?
At Jazal Color, we believe that all our products can offer style, comfort, durability, and a deep connection
to history and culture. We offer one-of- a-kind Mayan textile accessories that show the world the beautiful

One of our great joys in running our business is in the form of the artisans we work with. These are
products that take advantage of vintage handmade textiles. Using the corte (Mayan women’s wrap dresses) and huipil (Mayan women’s blouse), we combine these wonderful textiles with more traditional
fabrics. We wish for you to love our products as much as we do!
If you had one tip to share with a dog owner trying to care for and spoil his or her pet on a budget, what

This tip is for first dog owners. Dog toys are part of raising a dog. Toys do more than just entertain your
dog for a few minutes a day. While a dog is playing with a toy they are doing exercise. Certain toys, like
chew bones, rope tug or a plush squeaker, give your dog an approved outlet on which to satisfy their
instinctual drive to gnaw on something.
