Shades of Deep Violet & Raw Umber, combined with two wide Indigo-dyed panels of ikat and thin lines of orange. The jaspe (ikat) panels depict traditional Maya designs: corn, quetzal birds, 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.

Colors: Mostly Deep Violet, Raw Umber and Indigo
