Each individual village around Lake Atitlan has their own patters, their own knots and their own style. The subtleties only let the keen and astute eye know what is really going on and who should be the hit of the Runway. Paris, New York, blah blah blah... the real creators of style are in villages all over the world. Thousands of years have gone into making these textiles some of the best. Three generations of women are working here in this local shop. They are all designed for women of the village and surrounding farms, not for peddling to tourists. There is coul, heart and a sense of pride that is threaded back and worth knot after knot.
