The Mayan Indians create their textiles combining different geometric forms, patterns and figures and each Maya village has it’s own tradition of weaving styles in a magnificent array of colors and patterns that have changed little in over 1000 years. These *ikat textiles incorporate jaspe designs, either in the warp and/or in the weft, and the weaving is done on Spanish-style treadle looms.
*Ikat refers to the dye technique used to create these beautiful woven cotton fabrics that were traditionally hand-woven on back strap looms.
