Tzute Nahuala 405-0980Nahualá

Beautiful tzute from the town of Nahualá. This spectacular woven tzute measures 31 1/2″ wide, and 34″ long, composed of two panels joined in the middle. The tassels at each corner measure 12″ in length and are deep burgundy in color.

This tzute is striking with classic hand woven geomorphic animal figures throughout the textile all in predominately red hues. There is a rainbow of soft hued accent colors throughout the tzute. The background is woven cotton that has taken on a pink hue due to the even bleeding of the red color onto the background fabric, which is a desirable trait in the textiles of this region. The technique is to intentionally let the color of the threads run onto the base fabric. It is said that this dates back to the use of expensive silk threads on the huipiles, which would lose some of the color and run, causing this stunning effect. Where the two panels join, there is a lovely hand-embroidered randa that extends the full length of the textile. This randa is stitched in silken and lustina threads, similar to that used in the woven design of the tzute. This is a wonderful example of a tzute from Nahualá.

Additional photos can be found here.

This tzute is in excellent used condition, with very few signs of wear. This is a stunning display piece!
