Naturally dyed using the leaves of the Indigofera Tinctoria plant, this time-tested process creates a beautiful range of blues. Panels of fabric (“lienzos”) are handwoven on traditional Mayan backstrap looms, each only as wide as the weaver’s hips.  This larger blanket is made up of three panels that are connected using a “ronda” stitch.  Each blanket takes four days to dye, weave, and hand-stitch together.  Finished with macramé and long fringe tassels.  Due to its handcrafted nature, each blanket varies slightly.

This blanket helps provide education and health care for the children of the Single Mothers Cooperative.
