Item details

This fabric is 36 inches wide and is sold by the yard. Multiple yardages will come in one piece.

It is a mid weight fabric that would make great pillow covers, table runners, or almost any home decor project. It would also make a nice accent for jean pockets or a light weight jacket. I think the red stripe looks like it has an orange tint in the picture. The real fabric is truly red.

Weaving is a tradition in the Mayan villages that has been handed down from generation to generation. It is done on a treadle loom without the use of electricity. It is said that the gift of weaving was given to the Mayan people by the goddess Ixchel. The ikat design is incredible. The thread is actually dyed before it is woven. The person who does the dying and the weaver are true artists!!

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.
