All wool Andean Indian woman's manta measuring approx. 39 x 41 inches
This is an all wool woman's garment, quite nicely woven. It is made from handspun wool, hand-woven on an Andean loom. The two panels are sewn together with a simple zig-zag stitch. The two panels are almost the same, as can be seen in the first photo below. The dyes appear to be largely vegetal, though there appear to also be some synthetic dyes present. I would guess the date to be ca. 1960-1980. There is very nice tubular edging, complete on all four edges.
Condition is Very Good, light wear, no holes or repairs noticed, light soil possible.
