Natural Dye Scarves from San Juan La Laguna ---.  

These soft natural dye cotton scarves are made by women’s groups in San Juan La Laguna Guatemala.  The dyes for the thread are made from a variety of natural vegetation most from the local area.  It requires skill and a lot of time to grow or find the plants, process the materials to make the dyes, fix them and then dye the cotton threads. Then the thread is warped and woven into incredible variety of colorful scarves.  Made of cotton, each piece is hand-woven by Mayan women and their families. They make wonderful gifts for a friend or yourself.  Most approximately 9 to 10" x 60 to 68" (unless otherwise indicated) excluding fringe Each scarf is nicely finished at the end with fringe.
