Vintage 32: Corte Nahualá
This type of heavier-weight cotton corte with darker navy blue is called "morga" and are great for so many uses!
Heavy enough to throw over a table or bring to the park for a picnic and still light enough to be used for sewing projects, especially jackets and mid-weight skirts. This piece was woven on a foot loom in mid-weight cotton, with a gentle hand-embroidered randa, from the town Nahualá. The crossing of the two randa lines represents the Mayan Cross, signaling the four cardinal points and energies of the Maya cosmovision.
This piece is closed, meaning still in the original loop form, and with clean selvages.
Width: 38 inches
Length: 46 inches (if the loop is cut open, the length would double)
Care: Machine wash in gentle cycle and line dry.
