Man's pants ca. 2000 from Santiago Atitlan, on Lake Atitlan
This pair of man's pants was handwoven on a backstrap loom in four panels, and are of 100% cotton with a very small amount of shiny metallic thread at the center of the small designs. This type of pantalones is of the style traditional worn by the men of Santiago Atitlan, usually for special occasions. The finely woven geometric designs were added using the technique of supplemental weft brocading. All lower edges are hemmed, the upper edges at the waist have 2 hems and 2 with selvage-finish.
Measurements: waist width 26 inches; length waist to hem is 32 inches.
Condition: Excellent used with light wear and some light soil possible. Pictures of both sides are shown. This pair of pantalones is a very nice example
