About Program

Textiles are intrinsically woven into the fabric of Guatemala. This journey through the central regions delves into the cultural and historical significance of textiles in Guatemala. From the lush valleys to the foreboding volcanoes, we not only visit different communities but will immerse ourselves in the extraordinary landscape of this country.

Most importantly this itinerary highlights the women that make these incredible textiles. We discover the movement initiated and started by Mayan women to protect and preserve the rich tradition of weaving and learn about the importance of textiles in relation to Mayan culture and history. We will see the various styles and patterns from different communities and witness the painstaking labor it takes to make one piece. There is also opportunity to participate in a hands-on workshop where you will use the loom with instruction from an expert Mayan weaver and learn about the natural dyeing process.
