Patchwork Picnic Blanket 2
We've put together pieces of traditional corte (wrap skirt) full of ikat to create five unique extra large picnic blankets perfect for enjoying the outdoors in pairs or small groups. Because we made the most of the corte strips we had leftover from production, each blanket has slightly different measurements, not to mention patchwork design. We're including two handwoven bookmarks from the weaving cooperative up in San Juan Cotzal with each Picnic Blanket for extra fun reading in the sun.
The cortes used are cotton and very soft, making these blankets also great for using on the couch, with kids, and more.
Each blanket has been hand-stitched all along the edges by our artisan partners in Sumpango using naturally-dyed cotton thread prepared at Lake Atitlán. The embroiderers are happy to work from home during the pandemic as many family members are out of work at the moment.
