Caption:

There are few villages where men have preserved the custom of traditional dress. Nahuala is one of the few communities where men wear skirts. The brown skirt is offset by a bright red shirt with intricately woven geometric designs on the cuffs. The geometric pattern is the signature of Nahuala's textiles and is found as well on the women's huipiles.
