We are excited to be co-hosting another wonderful event with the Austin Friends of Folk Art! David and Sally Hamilton of Indigena Imports will be having a show & tell panel discussion about Guatemalan Huipiles. Our store owner, Marcia Lucas, will also be joining the discussion. Marcia Lucas and the Hamiltons have been visiting Guatemala for many years, since the late 70’s, buying for their businesses, each have made a trip there this year, 2016, and feel deep changes in the Market.
Discussion will include: Fashion trends in Guatemala, older vs. newer huipiles, examples of ceremonial costumes & collectibles, and more.
Both Indigena Imports & El Interior will have some pieces on hand for everyone to view / purchase.
