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. This shawl or rebozo was woven on a back strap loom. It is quite unusual and was admired by the weaver at a rival coop I visited after purchasing it. She had not seen this color combination nor the type of embroidery used at the ends to embellish the weaving. I have some photos of her examining it and her granddaughter taking photos of it so they could try their hand at it! 

One of a kind. Black and taupe with orange-red edges and muted embroidery on the ends. It is very drapey and could easily be worn as a shawl or as a large scarf.
