The gem of Guatemala, Lake Atitlan is a crater lake surrounded by volcanoes and a living hub of Mayan cultures. Visiting on a day trip from Guatemala City simplifies transportation to this highland destination and lets you see the best of the lake in just a day—a difficult feat to accomplish on your own. This tour includes stops at top Lake Atitlan sites including the Maximon shrine and the busy town of Panajachel.

It's a weaving cooperative. We watched a demonstration on the process and were impressed by how environmentally gentle it was (in contrast to industrialized cotton production) and by how beautiful the products are.

Our tour guide brought us here while on a stop in San Juan. I was not super psyched about it but tried to be open minded. We were led into a room with benches around a display area. A nice young girl came and started explaining how the cotton is dyed using natural ingredients. I was immediately interested. They have to gather plants a certain lunar cycles to obtain a specific color or use crushed up insects to obtain another. Processes that take weeks just to make enough color for 1 item. I was blown away. Afterwards we were led to another area where a lady was showing us how the dyes strands became articles of clothing. It's a hypnotic process that was fun to watch. After that we were taken through the shop in case we wanted to purchase anything. I ended up buying a couple things not only because I had a new appreciation for how these items are made but because it was also for a great cause. Highly recommend a stop here or a similar demo.

We hopped aboard a pick up truck from San Pedro La Laguna to visit this cooperative. We received a demonstration of the entire process from obtaining the wool, flattening it, soaking it in banana pulp to make it absorb colour, the dying process, the weaving process and were able to purchase these traditional hand made goods. All money goes directly to the particular artisan to help send their children to school.

It's a womens cooperative where they teach each other weaving to earn money for the education of their children. When there are enough (3 or more) visitors, they make a presentation where they illustrate how they work. Their textile products are beautiful. The women are super friendly. I'm actually learning how to weave at this place these days by making my own scarf :)
