This fabric is 36 inches wide and is sold by the yard. Multiple yardages will come in one piece.

It is 100% cotton and is sold by the yards. This fabric was hand woven in the highlands of Guatemala. It is an excellent example of the the artistry of the Mayan people. It is a finely woven textile. It is medium weight and would work well for a home decor project or apparel. The colors are a play on the traditional huipil from the town of Solola. They are just beautiful together. The last picture was taken on market day in Solola. It's of a women carrying her baby on her back.

It is said that the Mayan goddess Ixchel gave the gift of weaving to her people. It was an extraordinary gift. In Maya communities weaving is handed down from generation to generation. Children play in the room where their parents weave. They grow up learning the art from their parents.

Additional

All the fabrics on this site are 100% cotton hand-dyed and hand-woven in Guatemala. The regular fabric is 36 inches wide. The fabric is not cut until you buy it. When you order multiple yards, you'll receive your fabric in a continuous piece.

Since these fabrics are hand woven there might be slight imperfections. These are characteristics that make the fabric stand out from machine made fabrics.

The corte pieces are different widths. The width of each one is in the description.

Fabrics should be prewashed before sewing with them. Edges of the fabric should be zigzagged to prevent fraying. Please follow the washing instructions you receive with your fabric. Some fabrics should be washed in cold water with a mild detergent. Others require Retayne. I include detailed instructions on how to use Retayne.

Retayne can be ordered on-line from any number of sites such as Joanneā€™s or Amazon.
