Zunil

Lovely woven corte, or mayan skirt, full of  flower vases with mayan figures! It is from the town of Zuníl. The corte is a wrap-around skirt that consists of a cut of cloth joined to form a tube into which the woman steps. Excess material is wrapped around the body and folded at the waist in pleats, and tied with a faja (belt).

This wonderful and striking corte measures 87″ long and 45″ wide from side to side as shown in the photo. Cortes are sewn together to make a tube. This corte has had the stitching joining the sides of the tube removed, and measures approximately 45″ by 87″ laid out flat. The center embroidery runs the full length of the 87″. This corte is fairly thick and heavy.  The background is black cotton woven fabric. The embroidered roses are machine done free-hand, and are truly an art form. Just amazing!

This corte is in great used condition, with perhaps a few loose threads, but very little sign of wear.

Large and beautiful woven corte, or mayan skirt, ikat design with beautiful colors with a super soft feel. The corte is a wrap-around skirt that consists of a cut of cloth usually joined to form a tube into which the woman steps. Excess material is wrapped around the body and folded at the waist in pleats, and tied with a faja (belt).

This elegant corte measures 44″ wide and 90″ long (laid flat). Cortes are generally sewn together to make a tube, but this one is not. It is a full flat piece of fabric.

This corte is beautiful with its ikat design that is accented with colors of blue, purple, yellow, and green on a navy blue and white ikat design. This heavy fabric is very slightly worn which gives it a super soft feel. Along the center of the corte is a randa or seam that joins the two large sections of fabric. This randa is decorated by hand embroidered designs of jars, baskets, and mayan stars in a variety of colors. Where the corte used to be joined to create the tube skirt is another randa that has been cut to open up the skirt.

Fabric from cortes can be used in a variety of ways, such as table covers, bed covers, curtains, throw pillows, etc.

This corte is in very good used condition, with very few signs of wear. Perhaps some loose threads.

Santo corte from the Zunil region of Guatemala. This traditional mayan skirt is worn with a huipil blouse. The corte is a wrap-around skirt that consists of a cut of cloth joined to form a tube into which the woman steps. Excess material is wrapped around the body and folded at the waist in pleats. The seam where the material is joined is decorated with a randa, stitched vertically to hide the seam. This santo corte measures 47″ side to side, and 23″ from top to bottom, and the stitching to create the ‘tube’ style has been removed.

This corte is beautifully decorated with alternating rows of colorful turkeys and maya religious symbols. The background fabric is black cotton with dark grey stripes. The top edge and one side edge have a zigzag stitch along the length to create a finished edge. This corte would have looked stunning on the santo figure!

This corte is used, but it is in excellent condition, with no sign of wear.
