This wrap and/or wrap skirt is a fine example of a Colotenango corte. “The backstrap woven skirts of [Colotenango] are extraordinary. Red and black warp striped, with supplemental weft decoration, they represent the most complex patterning of any daily skirt in Guatemala.” (“Threads of Identity”, Altman and West, p. 139) This classic circa 1980 example of a Colotenango corte was back strap loomed in two well matched all cotton panels. The supplemental weft decoration features bands of chevrons, universal diamonds, zigzags, corn plants and other geometric motifs.
A fine example in excellent condition. The more vibrant colors of this piece are unusual.
This is great warm or cool weather wraps. It is great with a tie belt, please convo me if you are interested in one!
The piece measures 37x 95 inches. This is a luxuriously large piece.
