This traditional shawl or tzute was made in the Ixil Maya town of San Gaspar Chajul. It was woven in two narrow panels on a backstrap loom, using warp-faced plain weave. The panels were seemed together along the long side to make the tzute. The decoration was added using supplemental weft brocading. This shawl probably dates from post 2010, and the condition is excellent, with possibly some light soil.
Dimensions: about 28-29 inches wide and 60 inches long, including the long warp fringe. This tzute was purchased from a woman from Chajul in 2012.
