Pink purple ..Floral embroidered shawls from the  Mayan town of Zinacantan  Mexico

  • Amazing Cape-like shawl featuring colorful flowers and tassels fastening

Flowers are a very important part of life in Zinacantan -Mayan culture Mexico, growing and exporting flowers is the town’s main industry.  Zinacatecan textiles are noted for their colorful embroidery in flamboyant  pinks, purples, blue and brown. The work is done outdoors in the family yard with most of the women attached to a waist loom.  Both men and women wear profusely embroidered floral textiles and I just fell in love with the amazing shawls with their fuchsia tassels.


*These striking shawls look just as good over jeans and a t-shirt as they do over an evening dress to make an entrance at a party!
