Indigenous craft vendors in Panajachel Guatemala

The craft vendors in Panajachel Guatemala make the picturesque landscape around the Lake Atitlan even more attractive to the tourists and visitors.

This is a peddler indigenous vendor carrying bundled handmade merchandise on her head.

In Panajachel the craft vendors are conspicuous

You can see them and photograph them on the beach, along the stoned promenade around the lake on the streets or small markets.

Sometimes they agree to pose for a small amount of money:

The indigenous people are selling them and also wearing them as traditional costumes. This is a beautiful traditional needle crafted Guatemalan woman shirt.

Guatemalan crafts also can make nice decorative art prints for wall or home decor.

  1. Very nice photos and a lovely post (still can’t do the likes). Traveling in some parts of India, we found places where every home has a loom. People weave cloth for their own clothes. The lovely red fabric in the photo looks a little like a traditional Naga design (from near the border with Myanmar).
