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.
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.
This is huipil made from a Colotenango huipil. A beautiful colorway. The dress is base is made from a thick and supple rayon called aleman which is prized for its drape. The cotton embroidery is very fine and the geometric designs are of typical Colotenango embroidery.
