Video Description
Traje típico, the traditional dress worn by indigenous Guatemalans, is an important part of Mayan culture. Each piece, color, and design has a specific meaning that represents Mayan values and history. Traje is hand-made by indigenous artisans and worn by men, women, and children in all parts of Guatemala.
