Tie Dye Scarf
This hand dyed scarf was woven on the backstrap loom and showcases a traditional dye technique called jaspe. A large zig zag pattern woven on to a black background shows bright blue, pink, and orange.
This fair trade product was created by La Estrella, a group of eight Kaqchiquel Mayan weavers from the rural community of ChuaCruz, Guatemala. The artisan group was formed in the early 1980s in order to support the widows who lost their husbands during the Civil War. They work on backstrap & foot looms. With the purchase of this item, you are helping the women in this cooperative to support their families.
