thi is a suit
thi is a suit

This object is a Guatemalan suit (its name sounds like it). This Guatemalan suit is mostly used for storing food, clothes and others that I maybe don’t know. The most people who use it are mostly women and they use it for skirts and storing food. This suit is made out of cotton and how its made is it's mostly knitted  or knitted by a  machine here's a pictureAs you can see this is not a powered machine, it's a hand made machine. The sticks help with the support and it takes about 1 month just to make a scarf. The main reason I wrote about this suit is because, The way the mayan weaved this and made it up is cool. This suit teaches me how my ancestors used this in many ways and some get past down the family tree. Guatemala is one the mayan counties still in the world. The countries include some parts of Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, Belize, El Salvador, Nicaragua that are still mayan.
