This fabric is 36 inches wide and is sold by the yard. It is 100% cotton.
This is one of the fabrics that I "ooh and ahh" over every time I see it. The design is just incredible - especially since it is the same color as the body of the fabric. I can't imagine how difficult it must have been to weave this one. It is a smooth as silk. The quality of the thread used is just incredible. I would use this fabric for home decorating projects. I can just see it as a tablecloth or pillow covers. It would also make a stunning jacket.
As with all the Guatemalan fabrics I sell, it was hand woven on a floor loom in the highlands of Guatemala. Each piece is woven without the use of machinery - just a hand made floor loom. Truly amazing when you think that it takes a weaver about a month to weave 100 yards of fabric.

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.
