A unique handwoven creation newly made by the collective Mujeres de Maíz in Santiago Atitlán full of intricate ikat designs in the warp. This is a backstrap-woven gem with a spectacular finishing with detailed macramé fringing.
Traditionally, "perrajes" (shawls) from Santiago Atitlán are rather short, meant for covering shoulders but can also be used folded and worn as a head covering in church, or even as a practical wrapping cloth for carrying items around town. It feels as if no woman leaves the home without a perraje. Ornamental and practical, the best of both worlds.
Threads used in this piece are cotton and rayon, with some metallic strips for added shine.
Width: 19 Inches
Length: 45 Inches plus 11 inches of fringes on each side
