Product Description

Older tzute used as a cargador or carrying cloth
This is a traditional tzute from Nahuala. It probably dates from the 1990s. 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 31 inches wide and approximately 40-42 inches long. Background fabric is cotton of multi-colored stripes, including indigo. The brown stipe is a more coarsely-woven thread, meant to imitate the hand-spun ixcaco, which is highly prized. I believe that this thread is commercial cotton, however. I purchased this tzute from an old woman from Nahuala in 2006, and she told me it was 10-20 years old.

Condition is Very Good, perhaps there are a few loose threads, since this is a used tzute. The first photo below is of half the entire textile. The photos which follow are close-ups.

Dimensions: approximately 31 inches wide and varies 40-42 inches long. This is an very nice older textile from daily use.
