Chiapas

There are so many good and beautiful things about Mexico we would like to share with all of you.

Today's turn is Chiapas, located in Southeastern Mexico and famous for its amazing Mayan ruins, Lacandon Jungle, Canal del Sumidero and most important, Chiapas is the house of twelve Mexican indigenous communities that have conserved their language, customs, history dress and traditions.

Chiapas’ most important handcraft is textiles, most of which is cloth woven on a backstrap loom. Indigenous girls often learn how to sew and embroider before they learn how to speak Spanish. They are also taught how to make natural dyes from insects and weaving techniques. Many of the items produced are still for day-to-day use, often dyed in bright colors with intricate embroidery which designs are based on local flora and fauna.
