Guatemala is known around the world for its distinctive style of handcrafted fabrics, such as those made with care at Trama Textiles. Despite globalization’s influences, Guatemala’s indigenous people continue to proudly retain their custom of creating and wearing gorgeous, colorful, and delicately adorned garments.
With the reality of racial discrimination being brought to light across the globe in recent years, we must honor individuals who proudly wear their traditions and culture on their sleeves with even greater admiration.
Guatemala is a small country, yet it is rich in Mayan cultural richness and traditions passed down through the generations. In Guatemala, not only are there at least 24 different languages spoken, but there is also a great deal of variation in the way people in different regions design and wear traditional attire.
This makes Guatemala an amazing place to find different styles of clothing!
