482 Tzute San Mateo Ixtatan-0105San Mateo Ixtatán

Striking design tzute or utility cloth from the very remote town of San Mateo Ixtatán in the Guatemalan department of Huehuetenango. This beautiful tzute has many uses, from carrying items to wearing folded on the head. This tzute measures 36″ wide and 50″ long.

This tzute is very elegant with its hand-embroidered design in brilliant colors of red, yellow, and black with accents of green, all hand embroidered on a simple muslin cotton background. The design has the round ‘suns’ radiating from the center as the traditional design from San Mateo Ixtatán.

This tzute is in very excellent used condition, with few signs of wear, perhaps a few loose threads and very slight discoloration around the muslin edges (mainly due to storage). A very spectacular textile not often seen offered for sale!
