Last month, we went to check out Guatemala Rainbow (colorful handcrafted textiles) in Antigua, and other small towns around Lake Atitlan. The highlight of the trip was to try their traditional back strap weaving.
We had a wonderful 2 day class at the textile school Indigo Artes, and learned a lot about the weaving experience. It is very difficult work and something that I hope that people will learn about and enjoy if they take the opportunity to visit. After the class, I felt that there was no way I could bargain down for a better price for textiles in Guatemala!
