Trama is a great place to stop by if you want to get off the tourist trail in Guatemala and really find out more about the culture. They run weaving courses, where you work with the women from the cooperative to make yourself a scarf, table runner or traditional huipil to take home. They also have a great shop which has the most incredible textiles I've seen during my travels - amazing scarves, homeware, bags and toys. They're a little more pricey than what you find at the market, but great quality and you know that your money goes directly to the women who make them which is definitely worth it. They can also show you a really interesting video if you ask about the history of the cooperative and how it works - very moving. Def worth checking out.
