Nahualá is one of the 19 municipalities that make up the department of Sololá

Its name comes from the Nahuatl word (Nagual), which means “mother” or “protective spirit” and K’iche  ”Ya” or “Ja” meaning water.

One of the stylistic characteristics that distinguishes the work of the Nahualá weavers from those in other villages is the practice of allowing bright red dyes to run into undecorated sections, creating a pink halo around the brocaded sections. The weavers also emphasize the use of geometric designs in zigzag, representing the snake or Kumat’z in K’iche language.

The titular feast is celebrated between November 22nd and 27th in honor of its patron Santa Catarina.
