Guatemala Indigo Mayan Morgas and Textiles

These skirts are called morgas and  are made of the dark blue indigo colored material that were worn in many Mayan villages in the past.  Some villages preferred a heavy or moderately heavy morga material that are found on this page, often with village specific white or light blue stripes.  Many have colorful embroidered randa's that connect the pieces of the skirt together. Mayan villages that continue to wear these styles include Santiago Sacatapequez, Santa Maria de Jesus, Santa Apolonia, Altenango, Chuarancho and Palim.  The skirts are in demand because many talented sewers transform the durable fabric into bags, vests, pillows and many other beautiful items.  Once made with indigo natural dyes, today most of the skirt material is made with commercial dyes. 

Other Villages such as Nahuala and San Antonio Palopo also use beautiful  indigo colored material that tends to be a bit lighter weight for their skirts.  They usually have colorful randas.  Click here to see these skirt options

This two-panel skirt is a large beautiful piece of indigo colored cotton fabric with medium blue lines. The moderately heavy cotton fabric was made on a treadle loom.  The colorful randa embroidery is  well done.  Its in good condition with light even wear and fading.   I bought it from Evalia (SAC) in 2009, but did not get it to the web until 2014.  She said it was from Santiago Sacatapequez.
