Zinacantán, a small town close to San Cristóbal de las Casas in the mountains of Chiapas, is home to some of the most beautiful textiles of Mexico. These small shawls, "chals" or "rebozos" are woven from traditional purple cotton thread. The warp also features the shiny warp threads in red, silver and blue. After it is woven, it is machine-embroidered in the most amazing floral designs. Each one is unique and all of them are especially beautiful. I handpicked them. Each one features the beautiful, large tassels that are used to tie the shawl around the shoulders. The tassels can be removed, if you like. Some of the edges are scalloped and others are not. Some have embellished edges and others do not. Beautiful as a table runner or a wall hanging. Be creative...
