Handwoven palm fan

Jit pook cooh collective makes palm fans by hand in the Campeche state of Mexico. This small collective of Mayan women have been growing for years the jipijapa plant in their yard then cutting the leaves finely before drying them in the sun. The dry strips are then brought to the underground cave in her yard where the natural humidity of the earth softens the fibers so that they can be woven without breaking.
