Land of bats

In the highlands of Chiapas, there is a population where 98% of its people is from Tzotzil Mayan origin: Zinacantan. Its name comes from the Nahuatl language and means “land of bats”.
Hidden away from the public, in the backyards of their homes, women hand weave shawls, tablecloths, skirts still using an old technique called telar de cintura.
