The typical headware of the women of Santiago de Atitlan is quite spectacular. A very colorful, narrow, 40 foot long, red ribbon is coiled around their heads ending in a multicolored geometric design in the last few feet. Cumbersome and time consuming to put on; it is no longer worn by woman doing their daily tasks, but you can always find a few women adorned and waiting to pose (for a small fee) for the tourist with a camera. Other villages around Lake Atitlan, have their characteristic headware, but none other like Santiago de Atitlan.
