Guatemalan Dresses

Guatemalan dresses have remained essentially unchanged for generations, and Guatemala is one of the rare places in the Americas that traditional dress is still proudly worn by so many of the indigenous people.  Guatemalan dresses usually comprise of multiple separate pieces, a shirt and a skirt, and sometimes a sash around the waist. 

Guatemalan dresses are rather simple in form, but in design and color, they can’t be matched.  Guatemalan dresses feature bright colors woven and stitched into incredibly detailed designs and patterns.  Geometric patterns and floral designs are quite common on Guatemalan dresses, as well as on sashes, capes, and hats.
