The Crown Jewels

Emerald Green, Sapphire Blue & Tan combined with Indigo-dyed panels of ikat. The ikat (or jaspe) panels depict traditional Maya designs: Fish, Baskets, Pine Trees, Nopal Cactus, and Geometric Shapes.

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.
