Last thing you bought at a flea market: James: “Vintage textiles and huipils in Guatemala. Good authentic pieces are getting harder and harder to find within our budget. In Guatemala, textiles are obviously beautiful, but they are also full of information. The traditional colors and patterns directly relate to the specific traditions of the villages in which they were made. You can often know the exact geographic location, gender, social and religious histories, even the marital status of the previous owner, all through these textiles.”
