868 Corte-2988Corte

Woven corte, or mayan skirt, in soft colors with lovely ikat design! 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 awesome ikat corte measures 32″ wide and 108″ long (laid flat). Cortes are generally sewn together to make a tube.

This corte is beautiful with its lilac, purple, green, and pink stripes with a grey ikat design. The ikat pattern is full of lovely small designs.

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 little sign of wear, perhaps a few loose threads. A lovely textile!
