832 Faja-2390Santa Maria de Jesús

Lovely colorful faja/belt made in the town of Santa Maria de Jesús. Fajas are used as the belt to hold up the corte/skirt in the mayan traje or outfit. This beautiful faja measures 1.5″ wide, 84″ long, with an additional 5″ fringe on each end. The stitched bird design runs approximately 34” of the total length.

This faja is woven on a white background with a tiny olive green stripe along each edge. There are eye catching colorful birds done with  free-hand machine embroidery. Each of these sweet birds is unique in color and design.

Additional photos can be found here.

This faja is in good condition with some amount of wear throughout and a few very faint stains. A beautiful textile piece!
