San Juan Sacatepequez Tzute

Vintage Tzute from the San Juan Sacatepéquez region of Guatemala. This textile measures 21″ wide, and 24″ long, including the fringe. It is made of a single panel with fringe at two ends.

This small tzute is woven with stylized traditional mayan motifs throughout the piece in a variety of colors. The colors are mostly reds, purples, greens, and greys woven on a cotton background. The background is red/pink cotton with stripes in slate grey and lavender. The weaving is very interesting and can only be seen on the top of the tzute.

This item is in used condition, with some signs of usage. The colors have faded slightly, and there are a few very faint stains and some wear in the weaving that does not detract from this true mayan work of art.
