This vintage brown textile was locally sourced in the highlands of Guatemala. This ikat textile represents traditional artisan weaving skills passed down from one generation to another. Originally used as skirt, or corte by Maya women, wrapped around the waist several times.
The mid-weight textile is assembled of two panels sewn together lengthwise and at the ends (making a loop). This cotton blend fabric was hand woven on treadle looms and is 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. Let your imagination run free!
