Item details

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

It is 100% cotton and is sold by the yards. This fabric was hand woven in the highlands of Guatemala. It is an excellent example of the the artistry of the Mayan people. It is a finely woven textile. It is medium weight and would work well for a home decor project or apparel. The colors are a play on the traditional huipil from the town of Solola. They are just beautiful together. The last picture was taken on market day in Solola. It's of a women carrying her baby on her back.

It is said that the Mayan goddess Ixchel gave the gift of weaving to her people. It was an extraordinary gift. In Maya communities weaving is handed down from generation to generation. Children play in the room where their parents weave. They grow up learning the art from their parents.

Not as vibrant as the photo but a very nice fabric.

Beautiful fabrics! Very good quality, and the Sololá pattern is one of my favourites.

The colors are gorgeous. The heft and feel of the fabric is smooth and flexible like light denim. I plan to use it in a pillow cover. It would also make a beautiful purse with leather at the wear points.

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 the fixative, Retayne, to fix the color. Please follow the instructions on the bottle of Retayne. 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.
