The Mayan godess of Ixchel (pronounced Ishchel) was the goddess of the moon, of love, of gestation, of medicine, and of the textile arts. The Maya represented her in many ways. Sometimes as a young woman, as a symbol of the waxing moon, or as an older woman, as a symbol of the waning moon, pouring a jug of water onto the earth. Sometimes she was represented as an elderly woman weaving on a loom.
As an ancient fertility goddess, Ixchel helped insure fertility by overturning her sacred womb jar so that the waters would flow. She was a goddess who refused to become a victim of oppression, and was a woman who, when faced with adversity, took charge of her life and turned it around!
We believe she is a perfect representation of our company and mission.
