Chimal women clamor to discover a new product peddled by a traveling salesman. He is from a distant town and sells a type of bean not found in the remote highlands of the Santiago Chimaltenango area. Dressed in huipiles of varying shades of red and with their hair tied with crimson turbans, women in Santiago Chimaltenango have long preserved their traditional patterns without altering colors or designs. Changes in diet are apparently welcome.
