Vintage Saltillo Mexican Blanket, Green
A large Mexican Saltillo blanket from the 1940's. This bright green blanket features a beautiful diamond tapestry of silk and cotton in the center. The other colors are woven in a beautiful ombre from dark to light color. It is missing it's end warp fringe--someone foolishly cut them off on both ends! So one end is unraveling a little (see photo). The colors are bright and it's not faded but there is some running of the dyes. It's not in perfect condition but it's lived a life. There are no holes but there are some stains. They do not detract from the look of the blanket (at least to me!) Here's a little more info about saltillo blankets.
