I am glad I found Maya Traditions. Their artisans are skilled and the organization is organized, which makes working with them a breeze. My products are always beautiful and of the highest quality.
Feel free to tell us about your business and design ideas. The sales manager will provide a design submission form and/or product submission form and sample making policy. This sheet includes all relevant information for the product including a computer-generated specifications for pattern design colors, dimensions, a detailed inspiration photo is optional. Once completed the team will review your ideas and determine what techniques or limitations there are with your designs. Our artisans create products using a variety of techniques perfected through trainings and cultural teachings. The sample making process typically takes 3-4 months to finalize for 1-3 designs.

Maya Traditions will schedule an appointment with a backstrap weaving artisan to create the textile for the sample in the office. The Maya Traditions Production Manager will work with the artisan to begin the design, assuring colors and dimensions are correct. The client must be available by email this day to receive photos of the sample in process via email or WhatsApp. Maya Traditions requires timely responses from the client on Sample Day in order to ensure the design is correct.
The designer can approve the sample, do one round of revisions on the sample, or reject the sample. An invoice will be issued listing the sample making cost and any other fees. For more information about sample costing and details, email [email protected] for our sample policy.
Once a textile sample is approved we will move the order into production. Product samples will require an extra fee and sampling process.
While our artisans partners hand-craft your items, we can provide you with marketing materials to educate your customers on the new products. During this time, we can provide you with information about Maya Traditions to help tell our story. Let the sales manager know if you would like to receive our Marketing Package.
