Product Description

Older tzute used as a table cover for cofradia measuring 38 inches wide and x 38 inches long.

This is a traditional tzute from Nahuala. It probably dates from the 1980s. It was handwoven on a backstrap loom in two panels, then joined with a simple overcast stitching down the center. Two edges are selvage-finished, two are hemmed. Dimensions are 38 inches wide and approximately 38 inches long. Background fabric is cotton of multi-colored stripes, including indigo. The brocaded designs are a mixture of polished cotton, mish cotton, and artificial silk (orlon embroidery floss). I purchased this tzute from an old woman from Nahuala in 2015, and she told me it was for use at the cofradia ceremony as a table cover.

Condition is Very Good, perhaps there are a few loose threads, since this is a used tzute. These traditional use ceremonial tzutes are becoming harder to find.

Dimensions: approximately 38 inches wide and 38 inches long. This is an very nice and unusual textile from actual cofradia use.
