Doll Skirts --- Traditional Mayan Corte  
These skirts are designed to fit 18 inch dolls such as American Girl.  Most of the fabric for these skirts is woven on a treadle loom.   Some have a complicated jaspe or  ikat pattern.  Each piece is handmade and thus somewhat unique.   Colors, weaving, embroidery patterns, and size will vary somewhat and supplies of some cortes may be limited.   Belts are not included unless noted.  Belts can be ordered separately as an accessory.

Santa Catarina Polopo corte.JPG (9124 bytes)

Santa Catarina Palopo Corte ---  In Santa Catarina women wear skirts that have many wonderful shades of blue often with purple or green accents and black and white jaspe (ikat) designs.  They look really good with the blue Huipil from the village.  The cloth is beautiful, but tends to break the sewing machine needles of the Guatemalan woman who sews these doll skirts - so I pay a bit more for them.
