Details

Woven by hand on a backstrap loom, this striking cotton table runner depicts the quetzal, Guatemala's emblematic bird. Its splendid plumage was prized by the ancient Maya, and the shy bird can still be glimpsed in the rainforest of Central America. Mayra Leticia Hernandez shares her textile expertise and love of colors with this beautiful weaving, adding the quetzal bird alongside geometric motifs over a warm white background.

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.
