Cojolya Association of Maya Women Weavers

Museum in Santiago Atitlán

This small museum and showroom is devoted to the art of backstrap loom weaving. Well-designed exhibits show the history of the craft and the process from spinning the cotton fibers to the finished textile. There's a shop, daily demonstrations of backstrap loom techniques and, if you want to really learn more, weaving lessons (Q150; book ahead).
