On a recent trip to Guatemala we learned that there are 21 Mayan Tribes and they all speak different languages. Each tribe has different color combinations and / or styles of clothing that distinguishes them. If you live in Guatemala you probably can tell what Myan tribe someone is from by what they are wearing. The Mayan women are known for their colorful, patterend, hand woven textiles. Below are photos taken in the cities of Chichicastenango and Antigua. See the wonderful combinations of colors, prints, florals and stripes.
