This incredible corte has ikat woven stripes throughout that are highlighted by purple thread stripes with a hint of metallic thread woven in. There is very lovely hand stitching where the seams are joined. The thick stitching features various colors. The corte is woven in a rich navy blue cotton blend.

Fabric from cortes can be used in a variety of ways besides just for wearing, such as table covers, bed covers, curtains, throw pillows, clothing, etc. due to the heavier and more durable nature of the weaving.

This corte is in very good used condition, with little sign of wear, perhaps a few loose threads. A spectacular work of art!
