888 Chajul rebozo-5005Chajul

Beautifully elegant tzute or utility cloth/shawl made in the town of Chajul. Tzutes are generally used by both men and woman in a variety of manners. They are used for many tasks including carrying items, covering the shoulders when cold, and folding a placing on the head to keep the sun off or when entering church.  This tzute measures 27″ by 57″ with an additional 3.5″ of fringe at each end.

This tzute is woven in the classic burgundy rich, multi-colored striped threads with fantastic geomorphic animals incorporated throughout and delicate soft tassels on each end. The tzute is made on a single woven panel. It is thick, heavy, soft and rich to the touch! This would make a spectacular shawl!

Additional photos can be found here.

This tzute is in excellent used condition with little wear, perhaps a few loose threads. A stunning textile for display or use!

858 Corte Chajul-3067Chajul

Wonderfully large and soft corte from the region of Chajul in Ixil Triangle in Guatemala. The corte 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 corte measures 35″ wide and 68″ long (doubled). This corte has the opening at the 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 35″ by 136″ laid out flat. There is an additional row of stitching on this corte that divides the tube into two sections. One is folded inside the other to create a ‘lining’ to the skirt. Note that the corte has been extended by adding an extra strip along the end. Some taller women prefer a longer skirt than the looms provide. This is very common.

This is a wonderful and striking corte. This corte is absolutely beautiful with its deep cranberry color and woven accent stripes. The fabric has almost a brushed feel to it. This light to medium weight corte is super soft to the touch and drapes beautifully!

Additional photos can be found here.

Fabric from cortes can be used in a variety of ways besides skirts, 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 good used condition, with perhaps a few loose threads and and a few small stains and worn areas. A very lovely textile!

614 Corte Chajul-0440Chajul

Wonderfully large and soft corte from the region of Chajul in Ixil Triangle in Guatemala. The corte 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 corte measures 38″ wide and 67″ 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 38″ by 134″ laid out flat. Note that the width of the corte has been extended by adding an extra strip along the end. Some taller women prefer a longer skirt than the looms provide. This is very common.

This is a wonderful and striking corte. This corte is absolutely beautiful with its deep cranberry color and woven accent stripes. It is not nearly as red as it apears in the photos. One half of the corte is woven with pale orange and blue accent stripes. The fabric has almost a brushed feel to it.  This light to medium weight corte is super soft to the touch and drapes beautifully!

Additional photos can be found here.

Fabric from cortes can be used in a variety of ways, 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 excellent used condition, with perhaps a few loose threads and and two small worn area. A very lovely textile! 837
