Mayan women of Guatemala live in the mountain villages of their ancestors, weaving colorful textiles using traditional back-strap looms. The intricate patterns of their weavings are both ancient and modern, reflecting symbols of the pre-Columbian past and the spiritualism of the weaver, through patterns revealed in dreams. Offered for sale at this special trunk show will be an array of clothing from flowered huipiles (square-cut blouses) to colorful rebozos (shawls), as well as fabric on the bolt, contemporary purses, vests, table runners and colorful beaded jewelry.
