Vintage 20: Corte Santiago Atitlán


( / )

A lovely example of the traditional rouge corte from Santiago Atitlán with extremely detailed ikat. This traditional corte style is woven in the town itself for local wear, which contrasts to other cortes made in Salcajá, for example, and are distributed all over the country. Note that an extra strip has been added to give the corte more length when worn. The weight is on the lighter side, making this piece soft and with movement.

This town does not use the decorative randa. The details of the ikat patterns are especially ornate. This is a true vintage treasure, and the piece shows the results of years of use. It seems like it has been cut and then re-joined together, perhaps to take out a section that was showing extra wear. Note that some of the selvages are left loose, and sections have unraveled slightly.

This piece is open (can be laid flat).
