All-Purpose Corte Throw 9

//This is a one-of-a-kind all-purpose throw//

We took a vintage medium heavy-weight traditional cotton corte with beautiful hand-stitched randa embroidery and converted it into one large piece of a versatile textile.  We think this makes a beautiful bedspread, picnic blanket, couch cover, camping blanket... and oh, so much more. 

Our embroidery partners in Sumpango took the corte (traditional wrap skirt) and hand-stitched it further to suit full and queen-size beds. We paid close attention to the randa placement, and we're very pleased with the results.

The new hand-embroidery is a blanket stitch all along the edges, and a simple randa-style union in pericón-dyed cotton thread (a local plant often used as a medicinal tea). We're sure that you will love feeling cozy on this piece as much as we do.

This is a truly one-of-a-kind item. 

Please note that some of the reference use images were taken with other color varieties.
