Abuelas Weave Her grandmother instructs Abuela in the traditional art of weaving and urges her to pull the threads close, 'like family'. They weave their tapestries and huipiles in the hope of selling them at market, incorporating legendary birds and other Guatemalan symbols in their designs. Their success, despite competition from mass-produced goods, brings them closer and helps Abuela appreciate her artisan heritage. The illustrations, full of colourful detail, reinforce this subtle message.
