The textiles of Guatemala are intricately woven patches of intense color. Each region of the country has its own textile design and color palette. Many of the women still dress in the beautiful, traditional clothing. The complexity and intensity between color and pattern is analogous of the complexity and intensity of life in Guatemala, and serves as an expression of Mayan culture. It also mirrors the way our dreams weave together into a beautiful tapestry.
