491 Corte Aguacatan-0164Aguacatán

Elegant corte/skirt from the Aguacatán. This woven corte, or mayan skirt is a wrap-around skirt that consists of a cut of cloth 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 34 1/2″ wide and 50″ long (doubled). This corte has the opening at the long sides as shown in the picture of the corte hanging. If the stitching joining the sides of the tube were removed, this fabric would measure approximately 34 1/2″ by 100″ laid out flat.

This corte is very striking with its woven stripes throughout that are done in beautiful colors! This fabric is soft, thick, and heavy. So wonderful to the touch.

Additional photos can be found here.

Fabric from cortes can be used in a variety of ways besides just for wearing, such as table covers, bed covers, curtains, throw pillows, clothing, etc. due to the heavier and more durable nature of the weaving.

This corte is in very good used condition, with little sign of wear except a loose stitching in a short section of hem and a small (1″ x 1/2″) hole along one edge. Very stunning textile!

Aguacatán

Very elegant and very long cinta from the town of Aguacatán. Women wear this style of cinta in their hair as part of their outfit. This colorful cinta measures 108″ in length (not including tassels) and 4″ in width. The tassels at each end measure 5″ each.

This cinta is finely hand woven with geomorphic mayan shapes that represent the colorful daily life running the full length of the cinta. The threads are a mix of cotton, acrylic, blended and metallic accents. The metallic thread is used sparingly in the lines dividing the sections from the tassels up to the top of the section with the ducks on each side. This unique cinta is woven in a predominantly blue color scheme as compared to the more commonly seen red color schemes. This cinta is older, as this color scheme and style is not found much anymore.

This cinta is in excellent used condition with very little wear.
