Tapacanasto Doña Lidia 3
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. We love the added tassels on the macramé fringing in contrasting pink, what a joyful color combination!
Care: Wash by hand in cold water and hang or lay flat to dry.
Width: 33.5 inches
Length: 23.5 inches plus 2.5 inches of macrame and tassels on both ends
