These stunning "tapetes" or mats were woven on a backstrap loom in San Andres Larrainzar, Chiapas. The weaving of this piece takes from 2-3 weeks because it is handmade in the traditional style, with a supplemental weft, incorporating Mayan symbols of the universe. The colors are predominately red on white, with a few accent colors of yellow, blue, pink and purple.
These can be made into striking pillow covers, hung on the wall in or out of a frame or simply used on a table to add a texture, color and a global accent to any room. They are beautiful accent pieces in your home or as a gorgeous gift for someone you know. One of a kind.
