Unique tzute from the town of Santa Maria de Jesús. Tzutes are generally 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 beautiful tzute/shawl measures 37″ wide and 45″ long.
This tzute is unique and beautiful with its deep rich colors and hand weaving that feature the traditional animal motifs of Santa Maria de Jesús. The colors are blue, green, purple, pink, and white on a black background. The thread used to weave this tzute is mostly acrylic and cotton. The randa seam joining the two panels is done in hand-guided machine embroidery featuring lovely flowers with tiny metallic thread accents and the occasional little hummingbird taking a drink from the flowers.
This stunning tzute is in great used condition. Perhaps a few loose threads. This is an incredible work of art in textile form!
