Details

"To us, blue represents the welcoming warmth of home," says a representative of Yama Aj Chixot Artisan Group in reference to the turquoise blue of this table runner. She explains that many of them feel an extraordinary sense of companionship when blue is present in their designs. "We tend to use blue a lot." They work in teams on the pedal loom, hand-weaving the table runner with cotton featuring the legendary wreath that appears in the huipil blouses worn by women in Guatemala.
