Corte Wrap 11: Chocolate fringes
Traditional cortes <cor-tays> (wrap skirts) with ikat designs are transformed into super cozy and light wraps. The entire outer edge of the textile is hand-embroidered by a group of women embroiderers, using naturally-dyed cotton thread from our partner cooperative of weavers at Lake Atitán. We love linking the two groups of women together to make these gorgeous wraps. The fringes are put together carefully with macrame.
This is a one of a kind variation with repurposed navy corte with ikat designs for both warp and weft, combined with a rich chocolate-colored plant-dyed cotton for embroidery.
For the combo with jade and silver earrings with matching thread ($130 for both pieces), please see here.
Please note that modeled images are of different Corte Wraps from previous production.
