Country: Guatemala   /   Village: San Idelfonso Ixtahuacan 
Ethnic Group: Maya   /   Feature: Markets


The traditional huipil of San Idelfonso is extraordinarily detailed. The entire thing hand-woven, not embroidered. The geometric patterns on the sleeve and back are unique to the village. Partially obscured in the background are huge sacks of dried spices and herbs that this woman is selling in the market.
