792 Rebozo Nebaj-2437Nebaj

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 23″ in width and 37″ in length, not including the additional 5″ – 7″ fringe on each end.

This classic Nebaj shawl is woven with the traditional stripes in many colors including the predominant green, deep blue, and cranberry. The figures tell a wonderful tale and include corn plants, birds, horses, and people throughout the design. 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 perraje is in excellent used condition, with little sign of wear, perhaps a few loose threads. Very lovely textile for display or use!
