Guatemalan Craft Sale

Tohono Chul Park

Full Event Description: 

Join us for the Park’s most popular trunk show to do some early Holiday

shopping for many affordable and unique items.

 

Mayan women of Guatemala live in the mountain villages of their ancestors, weaving colorful textiles using traditional back-strap looms. The intricate patterns of their weaving are both ancient and modern, reflecting symbols of the pre-Columbian past and the spiritualism of the weaver, through patterns revealed in dreams. Offered for sale at this special trunk show will be an array of clothing from flowered huilpiles (square-cut blouses) to colorful rebozos (shawls), as well as fabric on the bolt, contemporary purses, vests, table runners and colorful beaded jewelry.

Free admission during the sale.
