This vibrant crimson scarf is inspired by the colorful artistry of the huipil blouses from San Juan de la Laguna, in Guatemala. Gray, black, and beige undertones create a harmonious contrast as the women of Maya Traditions weave the cotton and rayon scarf on a traditional back strap loom. The ornate fringe is knotted by hand.

"Proud to Wear This Brilliant Scarf"
"Crimson Mystique" scarf has deep wine-red stripes set off by narrow strands of gray-blue, cream, and black. It's very striking and the weaving is meticulous. Having often lent to the women Maya weavers on Kiva, I'm so happy to find a source of their art to further help them improve their families' lives. Thank you!
