Alfombras

Alfombra is a carpet, usually made of sand and other materials during Semana Santa. The custom is brought by Spanish, although some sources describe almost similar tradition among Tlaxcala Indians. It takes a lot of work to make one «alfombra» – if it is 12 X 5 meters large, team of six people will take some 12 hours of very hard and precise work.
