498 Faja Palin-0045Palín

Unique and bright red hand-woven faja/belt made in the town of Palín. Fajas are used as the belt to hold up the corte (skirt) in the mayan traje or outfit. This beautiful faja measures 93″ long, with an additional 7″ of tassel on each end. It also measures 5 1/2” wide. The colorfully woven zigzag design runs approximately 29” on one end and 33 1/2″ on the other end.

This faja is woven in a rich red color and is accented with a colorfully woven zigzag design representing the mountains and rivers that flow through the area. There is much use of cotton threads in this vintage faja with an tiny accent of gold metallic threads woven throughout.

This faja is in good used condition with a small amount of wear, perhaps a few loose threads and slight wear on the design. A stunning textile for display or use. Would make an exceptional table runner!
