This piece of brocade wool & cotton is a Jewel of Mexican Indigenous Textile Art! It was all hand crafted using the pre columbian back strap loom technique by Purépecha indigenous people from Angahuan, Michoacan.
The amount of detail is breath taking and it is so well done that both sides of the fabric are gorgeous!

The piece can be used not only as a garment but also as a home decor accent such as a table runner or bedspread.
