A sample really excellent different clothes, colors and elements of tradition of Mayan life and that is currently ongoing in many Guatemalan cities. Very colorful and nicely displayed various scenes of daily life are, plus explain type of fabrics, looms, forms that are dyed threads, etc. In some cases are the photos and the original clothes.
