Indigo-dyed panels of jaspe on a field of burgundy and orange. The jaspe panels depict traditional Maya designs: Quetzal birds, Peacocks, Corn, Baskets and Butterflies.
100% cotton threads are hand-dyed by the weaver using mainly native plant materials. Woven with double threads for warmth and thickness.
All efforts have been made to accurately photograph the colors of the weavings, but they still fall (very) short of the richness of the actual colors.
This shawl was created by master Maya weaver María Florinda Pérez Mendoza. Click below to learn more.
