The Art of Weaving

As we prepare ourselves to return to the land of colors, I've been thinking about beautiful textiles that are everywhere in Guatemala. We were lucky enough to witness first-hand the weaving process on several occasions. It's really quite amazing the amount of work that goes into each and every item. I really really wanted to take a weaving class at Trama Textiles in Xela, but never seemed to find the time. Hopefully during this next trip, I'll be able to learn this beautiful art.
