Since conducting her first research project in the Highlands of Chiapas in 1989/90 about textiles, fashion and tourism in a Maya community, Birgitta regularly returns. Over the decades she has witnessed many changes and acquired expert knowledge about Mexican textiles and clothes. Join Birgitta on her ongoing exploration and discover rich Mexican heritage as well as hidden stories about creative ideas and inspiring activities of Maya women.
