Country: Guatemala   /   Village: Nahuala
Ethnic Group: Maya   /   Feature: Markets


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.
