You Tube MFA: Mayan Weaving Traditions

I long been a fan of indigenous Guatemalan weaving, but I did not know that wearing traditional clothing was dangerous up until the end of a 36-year-long civil war in 1996. In the years following the war, groups of women have banded together to sustain themselves and their families through weaving.

Note to self: boiled banana plant stalks are a natural dye for PURPLE.
