Mayas in the Guatemalan highlands are still weaving beautiful textiles much the same way as their ancestors did 1,200 years ago. Today, women weave cotton and wool on a backstrap loom, which is looped around the weaver, who sits on the ground. Many weavers now use chemical dyes to color the fibers, though some still use natural dyes derived from moss, bark, and other plants.
