This is a woman with her two young girls dressed in traditional Guatemalan clothing. The tops women wear are called huipils. They are made from panels of textiles handwoven on a backstrap loom. Each huipil is unique and decorated with intricate brocade designs.
Guatemalan women use raw cotton for weaving textiles. They prepare the cotton before spinning and dying it with natural dyes.
