Santiago Sacatepequez

I went to Santiago Sacatepequez on Saturday for their Day of the Dead giant kite festival (more on that later!) and looked around their local museum. Inside they have a model of a woman at a backstrap loom, weaving her huipil. The huipil from Santiago is an abstract design in bright red, with splashes of dark blue, light purple, orange, and green also woven in.
