This video gives a glimpse into the art of weaving on a backstrap loom. It takes Rosa, an expert Ixil-Maya weaver, about 10 minutes to finish one line of her intricate design, with her fingers counting out the threads and filling in the different colors. She is making a blouse. We filmed this in the village of Ilom in the town of Chajul, Quiché, Guatemala.
