Four shades of blue plus tan combined with Indigo-dyed panels of jaspe. The jaspe (or ikat) panels depict traditional Maya designs: butterflies, corn and a variety of geometric shapes.
100% cotton threads in this shawl have been 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 weaving, 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 for more info.
