Vintage Woven & Embroidered Guatemalan Table Runner


$ 185.00

Expertly handwoven, vintage, small table cloth or camino de mesa (table runner) from Guatemala.  I was recently in Oaxaca and it is very close to Guatemala. So many of the gorgeous Mayan textiles are woven either in Guatemala or in Chiapas. This is a more of small rectangular cloth that can be used as a table runner or as a gorgeous wall hanging.  The piece is two separate handwoven strips that are lightly basted in the center. They could be separated if you want to use them for something else or to sew end to end.  The color combinations are multi-colored green, blue, purples, pink, white and oranges and then a colorful bird is woven into the top of it. The back is faded as you can see in the photo. It was woven on a back strap loom.
