Vintage Handwoven plaid corte fabric


This beautiful plaid vintage textile comes from highlands of Guatemala where it was handwoven to use as a skirt or corte by Maya women, wrapped around the waist several times. The mid/heavy-weight canvas-like fabric was hand woven on treadle looms and is very strong, so would be suitable for upholstery projects, would make a great beach blanket or a throw, even a table cloth, bed cover or fabric for decorative pillows.

The textile is made of plaid panels, joined by a decorative randa embroidery seam.
