Product name: Shawl MAYO
Type of product: Shawl
Description (story of the item): Woven on a prehispanic waist loom by the Mayan weavers of the community of OXCHUC (the Highlands of Chiapas)
It is a smooth tissue with a predominant density of the threads in the warp hiding the weft that gives very dense and luminous colors into the products. It’s a traditional technique of this region.
This shawl is very soft due to the way it is made: the weft in this fabric is made from a single and very fine thread. The density of the warp color is also given by a game of thread by thread of colors of a very close but different tone, giving it a particular vibration.
