This fabric is 36 inches wide. 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. Every time I list a fabric I am truly amazed at what the Mayan weavers can do. The ikat pattern in this fabric is a testimony to their art.
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.
