600 Tzute Santa Maria de Jesus-0832Santa Maria de Jesús

Stunning older tzute from the town of Santa Maria de Jesús. This is a large and beautiful tzute that measures 39″ wide and 45″ long.

This very vintage tzute is beautiful with its deep colors and hand weaving that feature the traditional animal motifs of Santa Maria de Jesús. The colors are  blue, green, purple and pink with yellow accents throughout. The thread used to weave this tzute are cotton, acrylic, and cotton blends. Where the two lienzos join, it is a simple hand stitching that runs the full length of the tzute in coordinating thread, creating the illusion of one large square cloth. The edges have a simple hem. The background fabric is woven red cotton and has the wonderful feel of an antique textile.

This tzute is in good used condition for a textile of this age, with a few signs of wear. There are a few loose threads, some wear along the edge in a couple of places, a few places where the fabric has worn through, and some faint staining. These are very normal for a much older piece like this tzute. Nothing that detracts from the beauty of this true vintage/antique textile!
