Quedan pocos ejemplos de las prendas tradicionales para hombres, una de estás es el paño de Carranza que lo portan los hombres doblado en los hombros dignamente como símbolo de pertenencia, generalmente son los ancianos pues el costo de elaboración , es muy alto. Este es un bello paño de la comunidad de Venustiano Carranza, Chiapas. #hechoamano #telardecintura #backstraploom #madeinchiapas

Taken before my journey to New Mexico a month ago: Martína and I, my first weaving teacher and likely one of the very few old time traditional backstrap weavers coming around this way to teach people like me. She's been weaving for over 70 years in Mayan Guatemala - if only my Spanish was good enough to be able to understand her stories. #weaversofinstagram #backstraploom #kaqchikel #weaving #backstrapweaving

Our Raya pouches are made in a small village in Guatemala by a group of hardworking Mayan women using ancient weaving devices like the back strap loom. Each pouch takes hours to complete! We have several sizes available! 💖

Anyone interested?
I found this beautiful fabric, hand woven, 100% silk, locally made by woman's group.
It's gonna be fabulous for a blouse or a dress. I can buy and make them for you, if you are interested.

Rich culture is preserved in the traditional dress of Mayans. The color and patterns of their clothing may vary by village and language spoken but all remain brightly colored works of art.

The back strap loom, pictured here, is a type of loom used to weave cloth and tapestry, still used today by artisans in parts of Central and South America, as well as Asia. Usually, the loom consists of sticks, rope and a strap that encircles the weaver’s waist or backside, making the weaver’s body an integral part of the weaving process as he or she moves forward or backward to tighten and loosen the tension against the threads.
-
Due to its simple technology, the loom is inexpensive and can be set up almost anywhere, giving weavers the mobility to work in or outside of the home.

This photo was taken in the municipality of Ixtenco in Tlaxcala, Mexico, where artisans create beautiful textiles using the back strap loom. Aid to Artisans is committed to preserving traditional techniques and art forms such as the back strap loom through its programming.

“El arte es, por sobre todas las cosas, la expresión más real y auténtica del ser humano. La artesanía, en consecuencia, no puede ser sino la expresión más profunda de un pueblo. Y el artesano cada vez que une su habilidad manual, las tradiciones de sus antepasados y su innata creatividad, está mostrando el alma de su propia cultura”. Vicente Kramsky

Traveling through Santa Catarina Palopo, on the shores of Lake Atitlan, Guatemala, we came across this beautiful Maya woman. She is kneeling on her porch abd working on her back strap loom. This is how she makes money for her family. It takes so many hours to make something to sell. Incredible woman!

Still feeling inspired by birds, we chose this unique huipil from San Juan Comalapa for #textiletuesday , the detailing is fantastic and has the signature color red you will find in every Comalapa huipil ✨🕊

So excited!!! Travelling tomorrow to a remote village in Coastal Oaxaca, where they weave these awsome textiles in their backstrap looms. I'll be teaching a workshop on natural dyes to a group of Mixtec weavers. It's going to be soo interesting... and soo hot 😄😓😓😓🌴 #sanjuancolorado #slowtravelling #coyuche #CostaChicaOaxaca #textilecourses #traditionaltechniques #naturaldyesworkshop #remotemexicanvillages #MexicanNaturalDyes #mixtecoweavers #brocado #backstraploom #naturalmaterials #cleanprocesses #supportingendangeredtextiles

Come and Join us this Saturday July 22 from 1:30 - 4:00PM for our Backstrap Weaving Workshop at @pelhamartcenter Entry Fee $60 / $54 for members. If you are interested please go to www.pelhamartcenter.org and register. More info: Backstrap Weaving, an ancient technique that has continued to thrive since the Pre-Columbia time, was historically passed down over the generations through Mayan Women. Over the centuries, the backstrap weaving technique has remained unchanged, and is one of the ways in which Mayan women have preserved their identity and culture. #weavinghandstudio #backstrapweaving #backstraploom #weaving #weavers #culture

My coveted gift from today's excursion to #internationalfolkartmarket ! It is a traditional #Guatemalan #huipil!Huipil [ˈwipil] (from the Nahuatl word huīpīlli[wiːˈpiːlːi]) is the most common traditional garment worn by indigenous women from central Mexico to Central America.

It is a loose-fitting tunic, generally made from two or three rectangular pieces of fabric which are then joined together with stitching, ribbons or fabric strips, with an opening for the head and, if the sides are sewn, openings for the arms. Traditional huipils, especially ceremonial ones, are usually made with fabric woven on a #backstraploom and are heavily decorated with designs woven into the fabric, #embroidery, ribbons, lace and more. However, some huipils are also made from commercial fabric.

Lengths of the huipil can vary from a short blouse-like garment or long enough to reach the floor. The style of traditional huipils generally indicates the ethnicity and community of the wearer as each have their own methods of creating the fabric and decorations. Some huipils have intricate and meaningful designs. Ceremonial huipils are the most elaborate and are reserved for weddings, burials, women of high rank and even to dress the statues of saints.

I am so blessed to add this to my wardrobe! Someday I hope to go to Guatemala and learn from the masterful women who make them. #textileart
