One of a kind striking vintage woven cargador or utility cloth from Guatemala. Can be used or stunningly displayed in your home! It would make a great tablecloth!
Beautiful cargador or utility cloth with ikat design. This cargador measures 55″ wide and 53″ long and is woven with cotton and acrylic blend threads. Cargadores are used by both men and woman in a variety of manners. They are used for many tasks including carrying items, covering the shoulders when cold, and folding and placing on the head to keep the sun off or when entering a church.
This cargador is unique and beautiful with its deep rich colors and hand weaving with ikat designs. The colors are beautiful shades of reds, oranges, golds, and browns with accents of grey and green. The randa seam joining the two panels is done in hand-sewn embroidery in coordinating colors.
This large and lovely cargador is in excellent like-new used condition. Perhaps a few loose threads. This is an incredible work of art in textile form!
