Mexican Table Runner in Red Backstrap Loomed by Indigenous People
About this Mexican textile
Mexican textiles from Chiapas are one of the most important folk art traditions. This mesmerizing 100% cotton indigenous textile has an exquisite red palette. It can be used as a table runner or bed spread. It was crafted by Tzotzil indigenous women from Chiapas, Mexico using the pre hispanic backstrap loom technique. Making each textile takes years of knowledge and days of dedication. With your shopping you support the work of indigenous families, with whom we work directly on a fair trade basis.
