Beautiful elegant faja/belt from the region of Chajul. Fajas are used as the belt to hold up the corte (skirt) in the mayan traje or outfit. This beautiful faja measures 134″ long, with an additional 2 1/2″ of tassel on each end. It also measures 8” wide. The colorfully geomorphic design runs approximately 27 1/2” in length.

This faja is woven in a rich chocolate brown color and is accented with a colorfully woven geomorphic design with birds and deer hidden in the pattern. There is some use of metallic threads in the designs. The fringe ends are accented with colorful ‘pompoms’.

This faja is in excellent used condition with little sign of wear, perhaps a few loose threads at the tassels. This would look amazing along a mantle or as a table runner. A stunning textile for display or use!
