619 Cinta Nebaj-0457Nebaj

Elegant cinta/hair wrap from the village of Nebaj. Women wear this style of cinta in their hair as part of their outfit. This colorful cinta measures 108″ in total length and 4 1/4″ in width. The tassels at each end measure 7″ each. The more detailed weaving decorations run approximately 21″ at each end.

This super soft cinta is finely woven with wonderful colors of green with accents of gold, white blue, and purple, representing the mountains and rivers of Guatemala running the full length of the cinta. At each end there are sections with more detailed weaving containing mayan stars and geomorphic animal figures similar to those found in huipiles from this same region. The tassels are a wonderful mix of the colors found in the cinta, with solid center colors of red, blue, yellow, pink, and turquoise.

This cinta is in excellent used condition with almost no sign of wear. This is a wonderful textile for use or display!
