Ikat stripes are tied into patterns representing corn to create this beautiful, bold indigo blanket. The cotton threads have been naturally dyed using indigo stone and handwoven on traditional Mayan backstrap looms. 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 six days to dye, weave, and hand stitch together. Finished with macramé fringe and long tassels. Due to its handcrafted nature, each blanket varies slightly.
