LUNA & ZORRO ( MOLLY BERRY)
Molly works directly with both indigenous Mayan cooperatives and independent artisans who weave varieties of her own original designs. Molly also incorporates re-purposed one-of-a-kind vintage pieces that she sources in local markets. While she adores color and pattern, Molly aims to create pieces that will act as a neutral base in any home.
Luna Zorro offers cultural beauty and timeless, handwoven pieces to last a lifetime. By purchasing Luna Zorro textiles, clients are not only adding the highest quality and unique individuality to their homes, but they are also directly enabling artisans to maintain weaving traditions while becoming more financially independent and successful entrepreneurs, mothers, wives, community members, and storytellers.
"... Luna Zorro is to create a line of textiles that honor the upmost quality of traditional weaving techniques while being a modern line that can work in a wide variety of homes and spaces. While I love bold colors, my original designs tend to reflect neutral colors and patterns in order to act as a base that can be accented by color. I design all of my pieces with the intention of longevity – I want people to buy Luna Zorro knowing it is of a hand woven quality that will last a lifetime and a design that will work in their home through the years as trends evolve."
