    The women weavers use their backstrap loom to weave colorful cotton threads, shot by shot, into an artistic motif in a time-consuming manual process. "Cholbil" means "rhombus" in Tsotsil, the language of the weavers.

    For a patch, the traditional women weavers need around 15 hours spread over several weeks.
