Delantal

Beautiful delantal/apron full of flowers and birds. Original mayan delantal made from the same fabric used for mayan cortes (skirts). This delantal is adorned with extensive hand-guided machine embroidered flowers that accent the center of this apron. The delantal has accents of silver appliqué trim. This appliqué can also be found at the waist.

This delantal measures 47 1/2″ around the waist (from tip of tie to tip of tie), 26″ across the widest part, and 28 1/2″ from center of the waist to the bottom edge (length). This delantal has one pocket that is hidden on the underside of the apron and closes with a zipper. These aprons are a must have for the women of Guatemala. It is very rare to pass through the market and see women that are not wearing an apron, and many times they are this beautiful style.

This delantal is in good used condition, with a few signs of wear. Perhaps a few loose threads and thinning of the fabric in a few tiny spots. This delantal would look great as a decoration in the kitchen, or as a beautiful, useful apron.

Zunil

Large and beautiful woven corte, or mayan skirt, ikat design with beautiful colors with a super soft feel from the town of Zunil. The corte is a wrap-around skirt that consists of a cut of cloth usually joined to form a tube into which the woman steps. Excess material is wrapped around the body and folded at the waist in pleats, and tied with a faja (belt).

This elegant corte measures 44 1/2″ wide and 90″ long (laid flat). Cortes are generally sewn together to make a tube, but this one is not. It is a full flat piece of fabric.

This corte is beautiful with its design that is accented with colors of blue, purple, yellow, and green on a navy blue and white ikat design. In the design, figures of people and various plants can be seen running the full length of the fabric. This fabric is slightly worn which gives it a super soft feel. Along the center of the corte is a randa or seam that joins the two large sections of fabric. This randa is decorated by hand embroidered stripes that create a cross on the corte.

Fabric from cortes can be used in a variety of ways, such as table covers, bed covers, curtains, throw pillows, etc.

This corte is in very good used condition, with very few signs of wear. Perhaps some loose threads.

Patún

Patzún

This flower-filled huipil is from the area of Patzún. This lovely huipil measures 30″ across the shoulders, and 21″ from the neckline to the bottom edges (folded). The neck opening is round and measures 6 1/2″ in diameter.

This huipil is the most beautiful deep burgundy colored and has the traditional flower ring around the collar that is trademark of the Patzún region. The flowers are all hand embroidered in wonderful colors of reds, pinks, and purples. The collar is trimmed in black crochet. The background fabric is super soft woven cotton.

This huipil is in very good used condition with a few minor signs of wear. The bottom edge shows where the extra thread was woven back into the huipil (slightly lumpy at bottom edge).
