We heard that there is an amazing handicrafts market about 3 hours away from where we are staying. Journey in one way included a boat ride and 3 buses. But it was so worth it!

Even on the way there we could really be a part of Guatemalan everyday. And then arriving to the market - I was just soaking up the colors and at one point got so overwhelmed I started sweating and shaking a bit 😂

Weaving is a tradition that comes from the Mayan culture. The tops are called huipil and come in countless designs and colours. The whole attire also includes a skirt and a belt. So huipil is tucked in.

The men wear pants with a fabric cloth tied over the hips and shirts. But sadly there is very little traditionally dressed men left.

Enjoy in the photos! And if you have any questions – you can ask me either on Instagram or Facebook.
