This fringed textile from Oaxaca makes a great table runner or wall hanging. Organic brown and green cotton with purpura dyed stripes alternate across this table runner in a supple yet sturdy handwoven warp-faced weave. The white motifs are brocade weaving.
Women weavers of San Juan Colorado, Oaxaca, Mexico, still handspin and naturally dye their yarns, then weave their fine fabrics on backstrap looms. They have formed weaving collectives within their town to improve their weaving and marketing opportunities.
