If you want to truly experience and see the Mayan culture and way of life in Xela then a visit to Trama Textiles has to be on the top of your list! Located within a couple of blocks of Parque Central, you can choose to weave something of your own, check out the local store which stocks an array of different products or you can just hang out and watch other people weave while you practice your Spanish chatting to the women who are part of this cooperative. Trama Textiles was formed after the devastating Guatemalan civil war and is made up of over 400 women across 17 different departments in the Guatemalan highlands so you can be sure any of your money spent here will directly make a difference to the lives of these amazing people!
