Handwoven Scarves or Table Runners from Chiapas

Colorful Table Runners from Chiapas

I love color! And I’m so ready for it when it’s 1 degree and snowing. These very pretty and colorful scarves or runners were handmade by Jolom Mayatik in San Cristobal de las Casas, Chiapas, Mexico.  Jolom Mayatik is one of several women’s cooperatives in Chiapas promoting the amazing back strap weaving skills of so many highland women.

The scarves (or table runners) come in several different colors and are 11″ wide by 68″ long.  The color is so exuberant!

Here are a few more shots of color…Enjoy!
