The Chichicastenango collection is the most diverse in design and technique, from fine intricate floral patterns to strikingly modern geometric designs, the artisans of Chichicastenango are known for their creative flare.
Home of the famous artisanal market, the town of Chichicastenango bustles around the market square, selling and buying the most incredible textiles and handcrafts your eyes have ever seen.
