Women from each town in Guatemala wear a distinct huipil (blouse) and corte (skirt). The long panels of cotton used to make the corte are woven by men on treadle looms. This loomed cotton is typically dyed with indigo and has a soft yet sturdy denim-like hand feel.
Part of our vintage collection, this treadle loomed textile was originally a corte and has been opened and finished on each end. Perfect as a tablecloth, throw or beach blanket.
