Alfrombras-Rugs

Alfrombras-Antigua,Guatemala


Making Alfrombras
Okay, this is a big weekend for making Alfrombras in some Latin American counties such as Antigua, Guatemala. A tradition that started in Seville, Spain, and spread to Mexico,Chile, Peru and of course the most famous in Antigua, Guatemala. These rugs, made of saw dust are quite impressive and can take up to 12 hour to make. Groups of people will work on them all through the night to have them ready for the next procession that comes through and tramples on them.
