Beautiful handmade table runner from Antigua”

This beautiful handmade blue queztzal table runner is a work of art that we will treasure. We plan to frame it and hang it in our entry way so that we can preserve it and enjoy it every day. The colors are vibrant and the detail in the stitching is exquisite. When our package arrived, we were impressed with how it was gift wrapped with a little Guatemalan doll and a post card signed by the artist in Antigua. Many, many thanks to the artist, Mayra Leticia Hernandez, and to Novica for making this purchase possible.

I have this covering a lateral bookcase in my office. It is so pretty and I miss being able to go see it since Ive been working from home for the past year. The picture just does not do the colors justice.
