Antigua Guatemala Fashion Shopping . For some women, shopping is a food group. Take heart, the lusty consumer can pretty well knock herself out here in Fashion Shopping Antigua Guatemala for local Guatemalan Artisans products.
However, once you get over the dazzle of all the traditional weaving, jade jewelry, carvings, baskets, etc. that seem to be on offer at every corner, you might still have some energy and Quetzales left for more conventional clothing purchases.
Though most of the well turned out ladies in Antigua Guatemala do their shopping in nearby Guatemala City, there are still a few good boutiques in town to satisfy the gringa visitor who just didn’t pack the right things, which would be all of us. Or for the woman who just likes to buy clothes wherever she goes, which would be all of us.
Guatemalan Mayan Weavers Fighting Protection is made up of “The Feminine Association for the Development of Sacatepéquez”, is a group of women textile producers from the Sacatepéquez department. Currently, the laws of Guatemala do not protect the intellectual property rights of the designs of Indigenous clothing.
The Guatemalan Mayan Weavers Fighting Protection in Guatemala are looking for a reform of the Copyright and Related Rights Law, the Industrial Property Law, the Craft Protection and Development Law and the Penal Code. If approved, indigenous peoples will record their collective creations according to their forms of organization and will be governed by their own institutions, norms, principles and customs.
This has left traditional Guatemalan Mayan Weavers Fighting Protection open to theft by transnational companies looking to exploit and appropriate Mayan identity. When published in various materials in the Guatemalan tourism ministry, INGUAT, they are objectifying the real significance of our weavings.
At the time of this writing the 25 groups of women weavers who formed the Mayan Weavers Movement in Guatemala, with the goal of raising national awareness that all textiles creations are works of art and deserve to be protected as such, failed to find protection in the Courts of Guatemala.
