Beautiful cinta/hair piece from the San Martín Sacatepequez region of Guatemala, also know as San Martín Chile Verde. Women wear this style of cinta in their hair as part of their outfit. This colorful cinta measures 120″ in length and 4 1/2″ wide. The design runs the entire length of the cinta.

This cinta is brightly colored with elaborate and colorful weaving that features birds and mayan stars throughout the length. The decoration radiates like a stained glass window. Stunning!
