This set of four place mats from Juana Pantelho combines brocade and embroidery in a flawless fashion, drawing upon styles unique to the area of Chiapas where the pieces originate. The 100% cotton pieces are produced on a bakcstrap loom – a method that was widely used throughout Central America since pre-Colombian times. The weaver works sitting on the floor or a bench, pulling a bar to and from her stomach. It is due to this that a weaver is often seen as ‘giving birth to her fabric. Also you can use them as  hand towels .

The backstrap loom is much smaller than its pedal-operated counterpart and consists mainly of strings, sticks and a strap that loops around the waist of the weaver – hence the name.

 

In use, one end of the loom is tied to a tree or pole whilst the weaver maintains tension with the other end.

 

This means of manufacture is far more versatile that the pedal loom, but is not capable of making pieces as large.

 

THIS ITEM IS ELIGIBLE FOR RETURN WITHIN 30 DAYS OF RECEIPT IF UNUSED AND IN ITS ORIGINAL CONDITION.
