Made of silky rayon with a lovely sheen, this midnight blue ruana is the perfect lightweight layering piece. Subtle same-color stripes of texture created by the weave pattern run horizontally across the ruana, and several vertical stripes in black run up the back center panel, split at the neck and then run down each side of front opening. Finished with knotted fringe, the ruana is handwoven on backstrap waist looms by members of the Ranm Ixoqi', a cooperative in Guatemala formed by women survivors of the country's civil war. The name Ranm Ixoqi' translates to "Heart of a Woman."
