Collectors and experts have catalogued Guatemalan textiles as some of the
the most precious fabrics in the world. The eagerness to preserve the weaving culture and to encourage younger generations to carry this tradition and keep it alive is seen in many rural communities. Markets and textiles attract travelers from all over the world, unfortunately the bargaining culture does not go away in our local markets. We hope as a responsible traveler you value the local culture and support it, get involved and learn everything behind beautiful handcrafts specially how much is put into each one and their true worth!
