Tapacanasto Doña Lidia 2

A "tapacanasto" literally means "basket covering," and that's exactly how this textile is traditionally used, for special occasions. This simple and elegant handwoven tapacasto was woven by master weaver Doña Lidia from San Antonio Aguas Calientes, featuring double-sided brocade throughout the piece. Aren't those parrots and roses incredible? What an exemplary work of art in practical form.

We also love the fact that tapacanastos are adorned with detailed macramé fringes and added tassels, adding such a sweet accent to the piece.
