583 Faja Santiago Chimaltenango-0083Santiago Chimaltenango

Detailed faja from the area of Santiago Chimaltenango in the department of Huehuetenango. Lovely and long faja beautifully woven with nubby colorful woven accents. This faja measures 2″ wide, by 100″ long, with about 4″ of tassel braid at the end. The design measures about 31″ on one end and 35″ on the other, with the middle section having no design.

This faja is accented with acrylic blend thread designs on a woven red cotton background fabric. The accents are in a variety of pastel hued colors including greens, pinks, purples, lemon yellows, etc. Very lovely to look at! This faja also has a matching corte (skirt) and huipil (blouse) that creates a complete traje (outfit).

Additional photos can be found here.

This faja is in great used condition, with perhaps a few loose threads.
