The small farming town of Nahualá is surrounded by volcanoes and was known by Spanish settlers as 'the place of sorcerers'. The weaving styles of Nahualá are distinct and often feature colorful bands of diamonds in supplementary brocade.
Part of our vintage collection, this ceremonial textile features the Mayan double headed eagle motif in extremely fine supplementary brocade on hand woven indigo. Fringe at both ends. This textile is around 80 years old and shows some wear associated with age. Display hanging on the wall from our ash wood textile holder or use as a runner. Avoid direct sunlight.
