"Weaving has long been a tradition among the Mayan women of Guatemala. The daily attire of many Mayan women consists of cortes (handwoven skirts) and huipiles (wee-peels, hand-embroidered, poncho like blouses). The huipil has evolved as textile technologies and fashions change, but is a clothing tradition that can be traced to precolonial Mesoamerica.

 

"Requiring more time and skill than their commercial contemporaries, handwoven textiles are more expensive to make than mass-produced textiles woven by machines. Because of this, Mayan women struggle to practice their traditional weaving skills."
