The Centre was founded in 1990 by Krystyna Deuss, author of "Indian Costumes from Guatemala" and "Shamans, Witches and Maya Priests". She spends winter each year in Guatemala continuing her research into the customs of the Highland Maya. Jamie Marshall, curator of the Centre's collections, is in the process of documenting the textiles.

Access to the study resources is subject to subscription (£5/year)
