859 Corte-3040Corte

Woven corte, or mayan skirt, in lovely shades of green! The corte is a wrap-around skirt that consists of a cut of cloth usually joined to form a tube into which the woman steps. Excess material is wrapped around the body, folded at the waist in pleats, and tied with a faja (belt).

This corte is beautiful with its soft shades of green throughout. This heavier yet softly draping fabric is soft and wonderful to the touch.

Additional photos can be found here.

Fabric from cortes can be used in a variety of ways besides just for wearing, 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 very good used condition, with a little sign of wear, perhaps a few loose threads. A lovely textile!
