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.

What a fantastic color and design. The ikat is incredible and the color, well, simply fantastic! I know the fabric was woven by Mayan weavers, but this fabric reminds me of the colors of the Aztecs. The colors are strong and really call attention to the intricate design.

This would be a nice weight for pillow covers, bags, table runners, place mats, etc. It is a mid-heavy weight fabric. This fabric would also look great added to jeans or to a jean jacket as accents.

Guatemalan fabric is hand woven on a treadle loom in the highlands of Guatemala. It is a process that has been handed down through the generations in the Mayan villages. It is amazing to watch an expert weaver at his/her craft.

The colors are very vibrant. After using "Retayne", the colors have stayed even in chlorine water, since we are using a piece of the fabric for a costume.

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.
