Panel 8: Tactic

This is a newly-handwoven piece being sold by the weaver herself. Gorgeous three matching brocaded panels are joined with hand-stitching true to the traditional style from Tactic, Alta Verapaz. Each of the panels is entirely full of supplementary weft brocade figures such as crabs, horses and flowers.

Traditionally, a neck opening would be cut open in the middle to make this piece into a huipil. But without the opening, it makes for lovely home decor. The panels can easily be separated also, if you prefer to use them separately. 

Each panel's selvages have been meticulously finished on the loom. This is the work for a master weaver, Irma.
