This is an authentic, not for tourists wool shawl from Tenejapa, Chiapas. Truly fabulous. All wool and finely embroidered with metallic threads. The quality of this style of shawl is something of a status symbol. This one is particularly fine and beautiful and the white shawls are particularly rare.
The wool that goes to make this shawls is raised locally and spun on small top style spindles. This was purchased from the woman that made it.
