Black Scarf with Blue Highlights and Crystals
This beautiful lightweight scarf shimmers in the light with blue coming through the black background and beautiful blue crystals woven in to the fabric. This scarf was woven using the traditional backstrap loom, and is an original design from the Sharing the Dream artisan development staff and the group Tz'ikin Jaay. Scarf is 100% rayon for a super soft fabric, and measures 70" by 8".
This product was handmade by the weaving group Tz’ikin Jaay. Founded in 1990 by a group of war widows, this weaving group makes beautiful hand-woven products using the traditional backstrap loom and small foot looms. In 2005, this group was again affected by tragedy when a mudslide wiped out their community. Throughout the years, weaving has a been a way for the women to support themselves and their families and to aid their community in recovery.
