  • good for them! nice everyday picture 🙂

  • Meg

    The women’s clothes are nice, too.

  • Beautiful! And I mean both the photo and the textiles. There are some textiles produced in West Africa which are somewhat similar in design. I have always had a love for beautiful fabric, even though I don’t sew.

    thanks for the photos. bright clothing. do the mayan women make their cloth that their clothing are made from?

  • Fantastic photo, their clothes are wonderful!

  • I wonder why it is that folk art is always so appealing? Is it because it speaks to the native in us all? I just wonder . . .

  • I have always been in awe of the skills of the Guatemalan women. The textiles, the patterns are works of art. Your photo demonstrates community.
