MAYAN THREADS presented 154 choice selections of Guatemalan weaving from the world’s largest and finest collection. Known for their rich diversity of intricate pattern, color, and skilled craftsmanship as well as their sheer beauty, Guatemalan textiles have been acclaimed the finest in the world, equaled only by Pre-Columbian weavings of Peru.

Throughout the exhibition demonstrations of weaving were given by two Mayan women from Guatemala.
