Black and White Table Runner
Table runner woven on a backstrap loom by the Las Caracolas group in the municipality of Chenalhó, Chiapas. This weaving technique is done with a weft thread on a line design prepared from the warp, on which the artisans embroider with a traditional technique called raised embroidery. In this technique, the artisans count the threads of the fabric using around 12 threads of thread to give texture to the figures they form. The design on this table runner combines three different traditional iconographies called: “herringbone”, “rambutan” and “star”. In the finishes it has double tassels across the table runner.
