Large older Child's hat from Cruz Blanca, Department of Sacatepequez
This child's gorra was woven in a single panel on a backstrap loom. The person from whom I bought it told me it was from Cruz Blanca, an aldea of San Juan, located in the department of Sacatepequez, near the ancient colonial capital of Antigua in southern Guatemala. It measures 9 inches wide and 22.5 inches long. Both ends are selvage-finished. Condition is Very Good, with some light soil and a few pulled threads. There is some looseness in the undecorated section where the batten was removed from the loom. This textile was purchased in 2004.
