Table Runner, Unique Mayan Ikat, Unique and Handwoven

Table runner with unique Mayan ikat in the design.  A stunning example of primitive backstrap weaving by our partner artisans in Guatemala.  This Fair Trade, handwoven textile would make a great gift for a couple that loves the rustic and  country  home decor.

Ikat is very labor intensive for our artisans to make.  The long yarns are first tied with waxed strings to form the designs and then dyed in large pots of dye.  After the knots are untied some portions have not taken the dye and leaves the design.  This resist dyeing technique leaves beautiful designs which then must be kept in perfect order while weaving so they don't lose the design.  It is used in many of the typical Mayan designs and creates stunning textiles.

* acrylic and cotton yarns
* Features beautiful Ikat designs incorporated into the weaving
* 15 inches wide and 50 inches long plus fringe on each end.
* Wedding gift, housewarming gift or as a gift for yourself!
