more The seller says: This organic cotton blanket uses two unique colors. The ecru color is a natural cotton, which Mayans call “ixcaco”. The indigo is naturally dyed by hand using indigo stone. This blanket has been woven on a traditional Mayan backstrap loom, a skill which women in the Lake Atitlan area learn as children. Each woman can only weave panels, or “lienzos”, as wide as her hips so this large blanket is made up of three panels that are connected using a “ronda” stitch. This blanket takes four days to dye, weave, and hand stitch together. Due to its handcrafted nature, each blanket varies slightly.
10% of the proceeds from this purchase are invested in youth academic scholarships for the children of the artisans in the Single Mothers Cooperative.
