Intibucá, Honduras, 2014. Lenca indigenous women weaving their traditional cloth which is used to make their traditional garments.

The Lenca indigenous people traditionally were known for their weaving and to produce cloths that stand out for their vibrant colours. After this tradition became almost extinct, it is now being revived and young women are going back to learning how to weave and combine the patterns to produce the outstanding cloths.
