Indigo Legado Blanket

Indigo Legado Blanket

225.00

A thick cotton blanket that embodies the weaving traditions of generations past.  Using unbleached cotton (called “ixcaco”) and naturally dyed indigo ikat, the designs in this blanket are inspired by an antique textile discovered in a local market.  Carrying their ancestors’ legacy through to the new generation of weavers, this updated piece was handwoven on a traditional backstrap loom in Lake Atitlán, Guatemala.  Each woman can only weave panels (“lienzos”) as wide as her hips so this large blanket is made up of three panels that are connected using a “randa” stitch. Each blanket takes four days to make. Due to its handcrafted nature, each blanket varies slightly.

This blanket helps support ethical employment and provide education for the women and children of the Single Mothers Cooperative.
