This design, called Laq, is a traditional design of San Juan Comalapa, Chimaltenango, and Nahuala. It represents the different offerings that women traditionally give to guests, such as chocolate and food at a wedding celebration. It also has a part of p’op in the fabric, and it represents the division of each village or community.
The weaver of this fabric is Francisca Guarchaj Rosario from the community Nuevo Chuicutama, Santa Catarina Ixtahuacán. Francisca is the mother of 3 children and became a part of CMA 8 years ago. She is a very talented embroider and weaver with the backstrap loom and can knit a cushion in just 12 days.
