ABOUT THIS MEXICAN INDIGENOUS TEXTILE
Cushion cover with purple background and beige diamonds with colorful centers. A beautiful textile backstrap loomed by Tzeltal indigenous woman from the state of Chiapas. The back strap loom technique dates back to pre hispanic times. To create each piece the artisan straps one end of the loom to her waist and the other to a tree to create tension and using her hands and simple wood instruments they create these outstanding textiles.
