Cotzal Large Coasters: Naturally-dyed red / pack of two
// This is part of a collaborative mini collection of handwoven brocade beauties from San Juan Cotzal created with the naturally-dyed cotton threads that we love to use. //
These gorgeous decorative handwoven textile pieces make excellent additions to special nooks at home, as well as for using as luxurious coasters. Use on top of pitchers to keep flies away outdoors, place a candle on top, or use to create a small alter for those special items close to your heart... the sky is the limit!
Available in sets of two, handmade by Magdalena in San Juan Cotzal, with traditional brocade designs handwoven on backstrap looms. The material used is naturally-dyed cotton. The figures are of the "Traveling Bird" with its wings extended. Learn more about the traditional brocade figures from Cotzal in this blog post.
