Item details

Bright Stripes are accented by a pale blue to make this fabric really POP!! It was hand woven on a treadle loom in the highlands of Guatemala without the use of electricity. Hand weaving is a Mayan tradtion in many villages. The people not only clothe themselves with their weaving, but also make their living with it. It is truly an art form that has been handed down for generations.

This fabric would make beautiful cushion covers or bags. It is 36 inches wide and is sold by the yard.

Additional policies

All the fabrics on this site are 100% cotton hand-dyed and hand-woven in Guatemala. The regular fabric is 36 inches wide. The fabric is not cut until you buy it. When you order multiple yards, you'll receive your fabric in a continuous piece.

Since these fabrics are hand woven there might be slight imperfections. These are characteristics that make the fabric stand out from machine made fabrics.

The corte pieces are different widths. The width of each one is in the description.

Fabrics should be prewashed before sewing with them. Edges of the fabric should be zigzagged to prevent fraying. Fabrics should be washed with like colors in the washing machine on the gently cycle with a warm wash. In order to ensure that colors don’t run, add 1 teaspoon of the fixative, Retayne, for every yard of fabric. Remove fabric from the machine right after the final spin cycle. Dry in the dryer until damp dry using the coolest temperature. Fabric should then be hung up to finish drying.

Retayne can be ordered on-line from any number of sites such as Joanne’s or Amazon.
