Artist's Description

We was given a demonstration that day of how to weave traditional Guatemalan cloth. There is a lot of history behind each figure woven into the cloth, and each area has its own special designs.
Sadly it is a art that is slowly dying out, due to the discrimination that has went on for a number of years against wearing traditional clothing to schools or work.
There are many small groups throughout Guatemala now, that encourage learning the art of weaving, and other traditional arts – most at no cost.
