666 Rebojo Nebaj-0578Nebaj

Beautiful large perraje/rebozo or shawl from the village of Nebaj. This very elegant perraje would be worn over the shoulders or folded and placed on top of the head. This lovely textile measures 55″ in width and 41″ in length, not including the additional 3″ fringe on each end. It is made from two panels woven on a backstrap loom and joined with simple stitching down the middle.

This classic Nebaj shawl is woven with the traditional stripes in many colors including the predominant green, deep blue, and cranberry. The colorful threads include the use of some metallic threads. The delicate fringe creates a very elegant touch to the ends. The decorative weaving of geomorphic animal figures is representative for the area of Nebaj. This shawl is very striking and elegant.

This perraje is in excellent used condition, with little sign of wear, perhaps a few loose threads. Very lovely textile for display or use!
