Santa Maria de Jesús

Stunning, much older tzute from the town of Santa Maria de Jesús. This is a lovely detailed tzute that measures 40″ wide and 41″ long. 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 and placing on the head to keep the sun off or when entering a church.

This vintage tzute is beautiful with its bright colors and hand weaving that feature the traditional animal motifs of Santa Maria de Jesús in a variety of colors. The thread used to weave this tzute are mostly cotton and cotton blends. Where the two lienzos join, it has a decorative hand stitching that runs the full length of the tzute, creating the illusion of one large square cloth. The upper and lower edges have hand sewn blanket stitch. The background fabric is woven red cotton with blue, green, and purple stripes.

This tzute is in good used condition for its vintage age, with a few small areas where the fabric has worn thin and a couple of very faint stains. This is an exquisite textile!
