This shawl was created by Maya weaver Telma Cotuc and her mamá Elena Pérez. As is sometimes the case within a family of weavers the warping of the loom, the weaving and the finishing of the fringe may be a co-creation. Telma and her mother are members of the women's weaving cooperative Pujul Batz, a few shops down the hill from the Quetzalli cooperative.
