Story Behind the Art: Francisco Diaz of Guatemala learned how to weave from his parents. 'My parents started out as farmers and then learned to weave. I started to help them when I was 12 years old, and that's how I eventually learned too. One of the most beautiful aspects about my craft is when a client asks me to create a new design. I enjoy doing the research, making the trial samples, imagine the finish product, think of color combinations, and carrying out the new design.'
