|Hand Woven Guatemalan Fabric - for sale by the yard
This fabric was completely hand woven of 100% cotton on a traditional treadle loom in the homes of Maya families in the Guatemala highlands, thus making this a 'cottage industry'. Many of our fabrics contain jaspe (ikat) design work. This is a common element of many Guatemalan fabrics and an art form in itself. It involves the binding and dyeing of yarns prior to weaving to produce patterns with blurred edges. Fabric may only be purchased by the yard (with the exception of the corte fabric which is available by the 1/2 yard). Check out photos, videos and read more about Maya weaving and the traditional treadle loom on our Guatemalan Weaving Information page. Please read fabric care instructions prior to ordering: Fabric Care Instructions.
