Dimensions:
42" x 90 2-panel skirt material with single randa


Weight: 

Price: $40.00 & shipping



Almolonga cotton skirt (corte) with beautiful jaspe design and nicely finished d horizontal randa. The skirt has been opened at the verticle randa so it forms a long cloth rather than a tube skirt.  I like the combination of colors in the cloth, several shades o blue, greens and then a subtle pink and peach.

Condition: Good used with light wear.  The pictures only show a representative portion of the skirt. Its hard to find space for taking the full picture when it is cold in Wisconsin. If you want contact me, lynn@terraexperience.com


      

 
C_AM_16A
Dimensions:
43" x 45" (x 2)

Form: 2-panel tube with randa


Weight: 

Price: $40.00 & shipping



Almolonga cotton skirt (corte) with beautiful jaspe design and nicely finished single horizontal randas of a newer "plaid" design.  Handwoven on a floor loom.  Color is unusual, showing the trend away from traditional "blue" based material to a color palette of the woman's preference.  Includes some brillante (metallic like threads) currently liked by many Mayan women.  About an 8" portion of the randa has only the brown color (my guess is the woman ran out of the gold thread).  It works and I didn't notice it at all until I took the picture.  But wanted to make sure you know about it. 

Condition: Good used with light wear especially along the selvage edge.  The pictures only show a representative portion of the skirt. Its hard to find space for taking the full picture when it is cold and windy in Wisconsin. If you want a full picture contact me, lynn@terraexperience.com
