Faja Doña Lidia 2

This is a handwoven "faja" or belt in the traditional style from San Antonio Aguas Calientes. It was made and used by master weaver Doña Lidia López, who is the wonderful backstrap weaving teacher for the online classes we offer.

The colorfully-brocaded figures in this faja each carry its own meaning, and are present in about half of the length of the faja, as the under layers would not show when worn as a sash over a traditional corte (wrap skirt).
