Quanta riqueza em padronagens. Eu gosto. Lindas fotos. É a cultura de um povo expressa na tecelagem.

An astounding array of colors. I've often thought the most colorful wraps and garments come from Guatemala.

What a wealth of wonderful work. I know first hand how much work is involved in making these gems of colour I would want to go to the weavers and pay them twice what they asked. They usually earn so very little.
