When ss Azure Sea anchors off Puerto Barrios you go ashore and discover the

wonderful language of design and color that is Guatemalan weaving. Most women still weave on the same backstrap loom used by the early Maya, using cotton and woolen threads dyed with colors from local plants and insects. In Guatemala it is said that “Weaving has preserved the design of the Maya universe.”  ~  Ship Card (visiting Caribbean destination (W-143)
