Cinta Nebaj 3 (Headdress)

//A new Artisan Direct listing from Fernando in Chichicastengo!//

This is an exquisite vintage handwoven headdress from the town Nebaj, being sold by our friend Fernando in Chichicastenango. This piece would be traditionally worn intertwined with long hair. We love this cinta for the lovely brocade figures and the addition of the tassels on the ends. 

The headdress is handwoven on a backstrap loom with cotton threads.

Fernando and his family have a small textile treasure store in their hometown, a place filled with the most beautiful items imaginable. Currently, because of the lasting effects COVID-19 restrictions both nationally and internationally, they have not had many local sales. Thus, the listing of some of the treasures on our site here on our Artisan Direct page.
