History, Woven

The incomparable beauty of Mayan textile arts is often the first thing that strikes a visitor to Guatemala and one of the memories that sticks with them the longest. The Museo Ixchel del Traje Indigena, or the Ixchel Museum of Indigenous Dress, honors that beauty in its extensive collection of weavings, textiles and dress, and works to conserve the traditional practice of Mayan weaving. The permanent collection features clothing from 156 local communities in Guatemala.
